Renowned wine blogger launches SOMM3 film in Kelowna
Okanagan College Media Release

Madeline Puckette Oct 2018One of the top social media influencers in North America’s wine industry will be at Okanagan College’s Kelowna campus on November 12, 2018 to launch
SOMM3, the latest edition of the cult wine film series.

Madeline Puckette, author and illustrator of Wine Folly’s blog and books, was recently ranked just behind Decanter magazine by Social Vignerons (an online hub for wine industry news) for her influence on social media. With her popular illustrations and distilled wine information, Puckette’s graphical educational tools make it easy for anyone to learn about wine.

Puckette narrated
SOMM3, a provocative wine film featuring Decanter editor Steven Spurrier, renowned master sommelier Fred Dame, and wine critic Jancis Robinson.

The original
SOMM is the most viewed wine film on Netflix to date. Okanagan wine lovers will be able to catch a sneak peak of SOMM3 in the OC Kelowna campus lecture theatre on November 12. Guests can enjoy wine tastings starting at 6 p.m.; the film screening will commence at 7 p.m. The film isn’t yet available online.

Local social enterprise Start Fresh Kitchen is hosting the
SOMM3 film release party, which will include a book signing with Puckette, garagiste wine tasting and local small bites direct from the Start Fresh Farm.  

“The film release is a great opportunity for our culinary and wine community to come together and geek out about wine,” states chef Micheal Buffet, owner of Start Fresh Kitchen.

“Okanagan College is proud to sponsor this event and bring
SOMM3 to the Okanagan, because the wine industry is of critical importance to the communities we serve,” states Jonathan Rouse, Director of Food, Wine and Tourism at Okanagan College. “It’s important to reflect on our industry’s history to shape the future of wine.”

Tickets are available online at StartFreshKitchen.ca
 (head to the Calendar to find the event). Tickets are $38 each and include film admission, wine tastings and small bites. Learn more on the Facebook event page.

Proceeds from the evening will benefit Start Fresh’s culinary and farming employment projects.
