What drives sommeliers?

My nephew's wife is a sommelier. I wonder if she ever took this test...


"The 2012 documentary Somm focused on four people on their journey to pass the Master Sommelier (MS) examination. A surprise hit, it spawned two sequels following new sets of candidates as they memorised regional maps, quizzed each other, and underwent rigorous blind tasting training. All of them were relentless in their quest to pass one of the wine world’s most difficult exams, regardless of the personal cost. The more they got beaten down, the more they seemed to go for it again.

Just what is the appeal of learning to serve wine?"
