BLIND AMBITION follows four friends who have conquered the odds to become South Africa’s top sommeliers after escaping starvation and tyranny in their homeland of Zimbabwe. Driven by relentless optimism, a passion for their craft and a sense of national pride, they form Zimbabwe’s first national wine tasting team and set their sights on the coveted title of ‘World Wine Tasting Champions’. From the moment they arrive in France to compete in the World Wine Blind Tasting Championships (the Olympics of the wine world), this team of mavericks turns an establishment of privilege and tradition on its head.
