Esquire Network’s UNCORKED Premieres Tuesday, November 10th

UNCORKED is based on the documentary “Somm,” a story based on four sommeliers who attempt to pass the prestigious Master Sommelier exam. UNCORKED is a one-hour, six-part docu-series will chronicle six aspiring Master Sommeliers preparing for, and finally attempting to pass, this ultimate test. To pass the Master Sommelier test, one must have an extensive knowledge of wine theory, the skills to perfectly present and serve wine to the most discerning palates, and from taste alone – the ability to determine  the year, grape variety and region of a wine down to the exact, tiny village where the grapes were grown. Earning the elusive title takes personal sacrifice, confidence, a comprehensive knowledge of every wine from around the world, and… a really thick skin. They’ll face harsh criticism from the Masters at every turn, but if they can endure and perform well in the finals, they just might realize their dream. The Sommeliers must pass all three parts, theory, service and blind tasting in three years or they will have to start from square one.

Attending tasting events around the world – from Sonoma to Spain – each hour-long episode of UNCORKED, will feature the Sommeliers swirling, smelling and “slurping” a multitude of wines.  They also enter competitions overseen by Master Sommeliers including: Geoff Kruth, MS (President, Guildsomm.com), Andy McNamara, MS (Chairman, Court of Master Sommeliers), Fred Dame, MS (Founder, American Chapter of the Court of Masters) and Laura Maniec, MS (Co-Founder, Corkbuzz Restaurant & Wine Bar in New York and North Carolina). Impressing these Masters Sommeliers along the way will gain the candidates a huge advantage, as they strive to achieve their ultimate goal.  In the final episode, the six Sommeliers finally face the exam they have been working towards for years, in the hopes of becoming a Master Sommelier. UNCORKED premieres Tuesday, November 10 at 10/9c on the Esquire Network.
