Embrace your inner sommelier at the Sie FilmCenter tonight
SOMM, a documentary about the wine world, will start its theatrical run on Friday, June 28 at the Sie FilmCenter -- but the movie will have its Denver premiere today, at a fundraiser that starts with a reception at 5:30 p.m. at the FilmCenter. The evening benefits the Denver Post Foundation, Metropolitan State University of Denver and the Colorado Restaurant Association Education Foundation.
The screening includes food from local restaurants as well as wine pairings selected by Jay Fletcher, master sommelier and executive director of fine wine for Southern Wine & Spirits of Colorado. Additional master sommeliers -- including Damon Ornowski of Vin Divino and Sabato Sagaria of the Little Nell (and one of the sommeliers featured in the film) -- will be on hand for a Q&A that follows the 7 p.m. screening. For tickets, $50, go to the Sie website.
