|Ian Cauble returning to SSU for film viewing on March 28
Ian Cauble, Sonoma State University alumnus and Master Sommelier, is returning to SSU for a special viewing of “Somm,” a film documenting his journey to becoming the 197th Master Sommelier in history. The event is open to the public and takes place on March 28 at 6 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom.
The showing will begin with a food and wine pairing selected by Cauble and Eric Lee, SSU’s executive chef and Food Network star. Cauble will answer questions from the audience after the film.
“Somm” takes place in six countries over the span of two years and documents four sommeliers. It gives viewers an inside look at becoming a Master Sommelier, the highest distinction in fine wine and beverage service, as well as the extensive, four-level education and exam process.
“I wouldn’t be a Master Sommelier today if I hadn’t attended Sonoma State,” said Cauble. “The connections I made changed the trajectory of my life.”
Tickets are $25 per person and include a wine and hor d’ouevres pairing selected by Cauble and Lee. Seating is limited. Go to www.sonoma.edu/sbe for more information.
