Martin Riese is a water sommelier—part of a very tiny pool of professionals who make a living from tasting water. “Water is not just water,” he claims in the short documentary, The Water Sommelier, by MEL films. MEL followed Riese from his home at the Patina Restaurant in Los Angeles, California, to a high-end water competition and trade show in Guangzhou, China.
