The Master Sommelier exam is now only 6 weeks away and the Uncorked somms are feeling a little burnt-out from all the cramming, so Master Sommelier, Geoff Kruth devises a competition that's a little more fun; one that will help sharpen their skills, and also remind them of their love for wine.

The somms do some last minute cramming because the beginning of the Master Sommelier Exam is only a week away. Jane and Josh go over Theory which many feel is the hardest part of the exam. Meanwhile, Morgan and Yannick head on a sort of "study abroad" trip to one of Spain's wine regions. These two have never traveled together before, and it could be argued, have very different temperaments. This trip will be a great test of their wine knowledge and of their patience.
