Premise: There are many sommeliers in the world, who help diners in fine restaurants choose which wine to pair with their meal. But only a select group achieve the title of master sommelier; as of 2015, fewer than 250 people worldwide have passed the test since it was first administered in 1969. ``Uncorked,'' based on the 2012 documentary ``Somm,'' chronicles six sommeliers who are preparing to take the test -- which requires passing three parts involving theory, service and blind tasting -- to become master sommeliers. Along the way, the candidates attend tasting events around the world and enter competitions, during which they must impress current master sommeliers.
