Tampa Theatre is proud to host the Florida premiere of Somm 3, the latest in the Somm series of insightful documentaries about the life and expertise of sommeliers.
The world of wine hasn’t always been the way it is today. In 1976, Steven Spurrier held the Judgment of Paris, a blind tasting where American wines scored better than some of the most famous and revered French wines, and elevated American wine to a global audience. Wine critics like Jancis Robinson, one of the world’s most prolific wine writers, started to influence the drinking and purchasing decisions of the wine crowd. And then there’s Fred Dame, father of the restaurant wine list and the man that made the profession of sommelier what it is today. In Somm 3, these three legends of the industry sit down in Paris to taste the rarest bottles of their careers. Meanwhile, Dustin Wilson gathers the greatest blind tasters of today in New York City for a secret tasting similar to the original Judgment of Paris, with the goal of determining whether any of the world’s Pinot Noirs can stand up to the greatest Burgundies of France. In the end, both tastings cross with results that could change the world of wine forever.
