One of the "cool spots" at Mooo, XV Beacon’s signature restaurant, is its Wine Cellar, which is located in the restaurant’s basement and also functions as its private dining area. The cellar houses a number of rare bottles that should be of interest to visiting oenophiles, including a 1907 Heidsieck Monopole "Gout Americain" Champagne that costs a tidy $14,000 per bottle, as well as a 1996 Red French Bordeaux Pesac-Leognan, Chateau Haut-Brion, for $1,295.
If you prefer your wine by the glass at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s restaurant, you’ll be able to choose from a variety of sparkling, red and white wines. A few of our favorites are the 2009 Romey Russian River chardonnay, which for $10 a glass pairs well with Mooo's chilled oysters, or for something a little lighter try the 2010 The Loop sauvignon blanc from New Zealand for $10.
Reds range from light to hearty and make up the majority of Mooo's wine-by-the-glass list. We’re particularly fond of the 2009 Truchard pinot noir for $20, as well as the 2010 Flora Springs merlot from Napa Valley, for $15.
