The State Theatre and E. & J. Gallo Winery are excited to invite you to an evening with Master Sommeliers, Fred Dame and Kevin Vogt. Meet two of a handful of people worldwide to earn a Master Sommelier diploma from The Court of Maser Sommeliers. Enjoy a selection of international wines and locally prepared hors d'oeuvres and then see the film SOMM 3. In 1976, Steven Spurrier held the Judgment of Paris, a blind tasting where American wines beat out the classic French wines and put wine on a global platform. Wine critics like Jancis Robinson, one of the most prolific wine writers, started to influence what wine people drank. And then there's Fred Dame, father of the restaurant wine list and the man that made the sommelier profession what it is today. In SOMM 3, these three legends of the industry sit down in Paris to taste the rarest bottles of their careers. Meanwhile, Dustin Wilson gathers the greatest blind tasters of today in New York City for a secret tasting similar to the original Judgment of Paris, with the goal to see if any of the world's Pinot Noirs can stand up to the greatest Burgundies of France. In the end, both tastings cross with results that could change the world of wine forever.

Wine and Dine at 5:30

Film will start at 7 p.m.
