Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired worldwide rights to the documentary film “Somm: Cup of Salvation,” an exploration into the world of wine.

“Cup of Salvation” is the fourth film in the “Somm” documentary series. It follows a father and daughter on a mission to resurrect the forgotten grapes of their Armenian homeland. Their journey brings them to navigate through wrecked infrastructure and wartime farming, moving from the Caucus Mountains to secret vineyards in Iran.

This week, “Somm: Cup of Salvation” was nominated for a 2024 James Beard Award in the long form visual media category. The film is directed by Jason Wise, who also serves as writer and producer for the feature alongside Christina Wise. Jackson Myers, Eric Esrailian and Armen Kachaturian also produce.

“I am thrilled to continue our relationship with Samuel Goldwyn Films on the ‘Somm’ series. ‘Cup of Salvation’ is a very personal and dangerous film and there is no company better to present it to the world,” Wise said in a statement.

“We’re very excited to continue our relationship with the ‘Somm’ team after our previous releases of the first three films,” Samuel Goldwyn Films president Peter Goldwyn said. “‘Somm: Cup of Salvation’ is another fascinating look at winemaking around the world, this time delving into the complex history of wine from perspectives both global and personal.”

The original “Somm” released in 2012, giving western viewers an introduction into the world of wine on the other side of the planet.

Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the film in the coming summer.
