Carrying more than 60,000 bottles — the largest selection of wines on the Strip — Aureole Las Vegas has more wine-pairing permutations than a lottery drawing has numbers. However, you won’t need luck to find a winner: The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant has four sommeliers and a wine director on staff to help make the perfect pairing. If you’re at all nervous about choosing a wine, peruse the comprehensive list of more than 2,200 varieties online or on an electronic tablet, similar to an iPad, at the restaurant. Wine pairings, which usually complement tasting menus, cost $55 per person.
Half of the fun of ordering wine, whether to accompany your meal or just to indulge in a great bottle, is that you get to see the Four-Star restaurant’s “wine angels,” clad in black Calvin Klein catsuits, scale the hulking four-story glass-and-steel wine tower in the middle of the dining room in search of your vintage. The graceful ladies wear harnesses and perform acrobatic feats from the cables. Drinks and the aerial show prove to be a winning combination at the Las Vegas restaurant.
