‘Somm Night’: Wine tasting with Master Sommeliers at Galway Film Fleadh

 

The 26th Galway Film Fleadh, in association with wine merchants Cases Wine Warehouse, are delighted to present an innovative sensory screening of Somm, a unique documentary which takes the viewer on a humorous, emotional and illuminating look into a mysterious world—the Court of Master Sommeliers and the massively intimidating Master Sommelier Exam. This will be the first festival screening of Somm in Ireland.

On Wednesday 9th July at 8pm, ticket-holders will sample wines as they are discussed on the screen, in the Veranda Lounge of the Radisson Blu Hotel. The screening will be preceded by a brief introduction to the wines from Peter Boland of Cases. Somm has won multiple film festival awards and all the wines set for tasting are top-end examples of their style so the night should prove a thrilling experience for wine lovers and film buffs alike.

Somm is the story of four friends attempting to conquer an exam with a failure rate of 90% – the prestigious Master Sommelier Exam. This is a test that can cover literally anything to do with the entire world of wine and that’s only the beginning of the challenge! In over fifty years, fewer than two hundred people have ever earned the title of Master and the ones who succeed have risked their personal lives, their wellbeing, and often their sanity to achieve this feat. Known for its secrecy, access to the Court Of Master Sommeliers has always been strictly regulated and cameras have never been allowed anywhere near the exam until now.

Tickets are €30 including wines. Spaces are limited so early booking is recommended. Further information and ticket booking is available at www.galwayfilmfleadh.com.

  • Love wine, love film! The perfect mix! Cases Wine Warehouse is in Riverside Commercial Estate, Tuam Rd., Galway.

    • Hi Ali – your name is in the hat.
      Good luck! I share your enthusiasm for the wine and film too :0)

  • Sounds interesting! Cases Wine Warehouse is in a soulless industrial estate at Riverside Commercial Estate, Tuam Road

    • You know it well Amee … hope to see you there x

  • I hadn’t heard of the movie before I saw your post, but it looks right up my alley – firstly I love the cinema and this movie sounds really interesting, but also I love wine, especially trying different ones. I have a few favourites but I regularly buy something I’ve never tried before just to experiment. If I won the tickets I’d have a tough decision about who to take with me – my partner or a good friend of mine who loves wine even more than me.

    Cases is on the business park just off the Tuam Road, near Musgrave’s cash and carry.

    • Bradly – I think it will be very interesting for those of us that love wine. Best of luck!

  • Wish I saw it.

    • Adran – it has not screened yet!
      If you want to be entered into the drawing just play along by the rules ;0)

  • Because I haven’t had a chance to go to see a grown up movie in the last 2 years!
    Galway best wine Cellar is in Riverside Industrial Estate, Tuam Road.

    • Stefan – best of luck!!!
      I know that feeling – one more kids movie and I’ll go bananas myself!
