Master of Wine

Getting the actual certificate and title of "Sommelier" isn't very easy, but it's as easy as drinking a 1985 Cain V when compared to the "Master of Wine" title.

SFGate has an article on just how much of a pain in the ass it is to get this much coveted title. Not only do you have to have an excellent palate, plenty of determination, and amazing patience, you have to have a bankroll. A nest egg. Much like the one in Easy Rider.

Right now, there are only 250 Masters of Wine in all the world and only a very small percentage even passed their test on their first time around. You have to have guts, heart, and a liver to filter it all out.
