The new documentary “SOMM” follows several students working toward becoming a certified Master Sommelier – one of less than 200 worldwide. The film shows the intensity of the preparation, the drive of the candidates and challenges they face to become one of less than 200 Master Sommeliers in the world.&nbsp;<br /><br />“SOMM” features Sabato Sagaria the Food &amp; Beverage Director of the Little Nell in Aspen.
