The famous Sommelier Charlie Arturaola fell from grace after a momentary loss of his taste during the shooting of a movie. The image of "a Sommelier without palate" destroyed his career. After a few years, Charlie becomes a taxi driver, but he never gave up on dreaming to get his reward back. When Charlie accidentally gets to know the newcomer Italian sommelier, he will come with a crazy plan to try to get back into the wine world!
