Forgotten Man Films
Directed by:
 Jason Wise

Synopsis: Documentary which follows four sommeliers as they attempt to pass the prestigious Master’s exam.

Kitty Cameos: In one scene the experts are talking about descriptive terms for the nose of the wine and it is explained how the smell of Sauvignon Blanc is often acquainted with cat pee. Inserted is a shot of a calico cat standing in a litter box behind some white wine. This is actually director and writers Jason and Christina Wise’s own cat named Bacon making a cameo in their film!

Later Master’s candidate Brian McClintic is seen sitting on the couch with his wife Sam as they play with their cat who is chewing on a pen.

Final Mewsings: Betcha didn’t know your cat was a wine producer!

Many thanks to my sister Cyn (a Somm herself) for spotting the cats in this film! Also to Jason and Christina Wise for identifying their cat for us!
