The Venetian and the Palazzo kicked off the second annual Festivino, a celebration of Bordeaux throughout October, with a wine tasting event tonight in the Palazzo waterfall atrium and gardens. More than 200 guests sipped on wines from acclaimed wineries such as Château Giscours and Reserve de Barons de Rothschild while enjoying small bites from restaurants including Zine, Aquaknox, Bouchon, First Food & Bar, Carnevino and Venetian Executive Chef Olivier Dubreuil.
Master sommeliers were on hand to provide insights into the wine and what makes Bordeaux wine in a class of its own. Surrounded by the unique Harvest Crush autumn display featuring more than 10,000 grape clusters, 30 wine casks and 1,000 pounds of wine corks donated from the resorts’ restaurants, guests enjoyed the sounds of a violin trio and grape stomping performers.
Festivino will continue through October featuring prix fixe menus with Bordeaux pairings at Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro and Pinot Brasserie, two-for-one Bordeaux by the glass at select restaurants and bars at the resorts and flights of quality Bordeaux wines at casino bars and lounges. Additionally, The Venetian and The Palazzo are offering a Bordeaux suite package including complimentary bottles of wine. For more information on Festivino, please visit www.venetian.com/festivino.
