Executive Wine Editor at Food and Wine Magazine, Ray Isle says wine from emerging states and countries are becoming increasingly popular in the United States. He spoke with Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen during the Food and Wine Classic in Aspen.

To become a sommelier it takes a lot of training, a good nose and an eye for detail. 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. 

“SOMM” features Sabato Sagaria the Food & Beverage Director of the Little Nell in Aspen. Aspen Public Radio’s Rob St. Mary spoke with Sagaria about the film, the effort to become a Master Sommelier and the perfect glass of wine.
