2019 Wine Spectator Grand Tour and Tasting, Las Vegas

April 27, 2019

This past Saturday evening, here in Las Vegas the Wine Spectator Grand Tour and Tasting came to town, held at The Mirage and featuring exceptional wines from the world’s best wine-growing regions. All wines poured were rated 90 points or higher by Wine Spectator’s editors, an outstanding selection of different flavors, styles and techniques.  It was a chance to meet winemakers and visit with over 240 wines being represented!


There was a very diverse selection of Sparkling Wines, Whites, Roses, Reds, Fortified Wines and Dessert Wines.  It was an extremely special tasting to be able to attend and tour through wines of the world in one room over the course of three hours.

Personal favorites from the night were:

  • Louis Latour, Corton Chateau Corton Grancey 2015

  • Jean-Luc Colombo, Cornas, Les Ruchets 2015 

  • Argiolas, Carignano del Sulcis Is Solinas Riserva, 2014

  • Quinta do Vallado, Douro, Field Blend, Reserva, 2015

  • Ca’ del Bosco, Rose, Franciacorta, Cuvee Prestige, NV

  • Rust en Vrede, Stellenbosch Estate, 2015

  • El Nido, Jumilla, El Nido, 2015


Looking forward to having the Grand Tasting back in Las Vegas next year, and being able to taste and sample wines from around the world!
