Have you ever been to a fancy restaurant but been afraid to order anything from the wine list? Or, maybe you would enjoy wine tastings more if you knew what the servers were talking about when they started describing notes, profiles and finishes? Well, you can learn all about that and more if you subscribe to Somm TV! Now, what is Somm TV? It is a streaming service, just like Netflix, but it’s all about wine. Check out the trailer below!
Something for Everyone
Whether you’re a verified wine expert looking for the tasting notes of master sommeliers, a hobbyist winemaker interested in how renowned winemaker Gérard Bertrand’s wine gets from the vineyard to your glass, a wine newbie who wants to know the best food pairings to start with, or even a bold adventurer looking for the next wine region to explore, Somm TV has something for you.
No matter where you are in your wine journey, there is always something new to learn. And yes, there are plenty of documentaries and podcasts about wines that we carry right here at Monte Creek Winery like Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Rosé! So, grab your favourite Monte Creek wine, sit back, and sip along with the masters.
Somm TV has plenty of exciting titles. Their offerings range from an in-depth look into the winemaking process with expert winemakers to the tastings notes of professional sommeliers. It’s not all wine either. There are documentaries and podcasts about food on topics like food waste, chefs’ recipes, rare delicacies, and interesting and unusual food and wine pairings.
Have you ever wondered what to pair with mac and cheese? Or maybe sea urchin? Well then, you’re in luck. Somm TV has about ten videos on sea urchin dishes made by chefs around the world. If that’s too out there for you, never fear. There are also videos and podcasts about more common seafood pairings as well as classics like cheese.
