The fact that drinking is a favorite activity in Vegas may not be the biggest surprise in the world. However, if you’d like to keep it classy during your stay or night out on the town, find a place to grab a glass of wine – or two?
There are more than a few places in Las Vegas that you can go to get a top-notch wine experience, but we’ve compiled a list that our go-to wine lovers suggest. Whether you’re interested in a bottle, a simple tasting, or a glass, below is a list of places that is sure to make a sommelier smile.
If you’re looking for dinner and a show, but not interested in magic or comedy, head over to Aureole. Now, you might be wondering why we are mentioning dinner and a show when you came here for a wine recommendation. Have no fear. Aureole has such a large wine selection that “wine angels” use the Dewey decimal system to grab your bottle of wine while doing some crazy acrobatics.
To find one of the largest and most impressive public wine collections, head over to the Rio’s Wine Cellar and Tasting Room. This impressive hidden gem in Las Vegas is home to approximately 7,000 bottles of wine, and more than 100 wines by the glass.
For a European escape just miles from the strip is another hidden gem called, Marché Bacchus. Located in the Desert Shores community, you can wine and dine near a lake for Lunch, Dinner or Sunday Brunch. There are over 950 labels to choose from, and a wine shop to snag a bottle from before you head out to your next event.
For a casual wine-and-dine experience, check out Boteco for a world fusion. They have collaborated with high-quality vineyards and distributors to bring great pairings. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can enjoy a tasting that includes 2 wines and an appetizer hosted by a “wine storyteller.” There are limited seats, so make sure to book online. If a tasting isn’t your thing, come on Sundays for $2 off your glass.
For a truly unique experience in the desert, take a small drive to The Pahrump Valley Winery to enjoy award-winning wines. Plus, take a free 30-minute tour of the winery and the grounds at 11:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. or 3:30 p.m. every day to learn about the history of growing grapes in Nevada. Book in advance for wine tastings with groups of 8 or more. If a tasting is not your thing, but you’d still like to enjoy time in the winery, check out Symphony’s Restaurant, which is open 7 days a week.
