Mojitos, sour apple martinis and other flashy drinks might be the hottest beverages on the nightclub circuit, but there’s still something special about a nice glass of wine. If you find yourself longing for the simple pleasure of a good vintage, check out one of these recommended spots. – Ty Treadwell

The Wine Cellar

Rio All Suite Hotel & Casino
3700 West Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89103
(702) 777-7962
www.riolasvegas.com
The granddaddy of all Vegas wine bars, The Wine Cellar isn’t just a place to quaff a quick glass of red or white; it’s more like a monument to wine where aficionados come to bask in the glory of their beloved beverage. Where else can you view 50,000 bottles of wine, sample more than 100 varieties by the glass and see wine-related artifacts such as a rare bottle of Madeira originally owned by Thomas Jefferson? Be sure to grab a spot on one of the comfy leather couches because you might be here for a while.

Nora’s Wine Bar & Osteria

1031 South Rampart Boulevard
Las Vegas, NV 89145
(702) 940-6672
www.noraswinebar.com
With 350 wines from which to choose — and 60 served by the glass — there are plenty of reasons to make Nora’s your regular hang-out spot. It’s also the first restaurant in Vegas to use the Enomatic wine serving system (a state-of-the-art method of injecting inert gas into open wine bottles to preserve the remaining wine), making the allure even stronger. Add in the fact that the menu is loaded with delicious and inventive Italian cuisine, and you’ll have a hard time finding a reason to ever leave.

Double Helix Wine Bar & Boutique

The Shoppes at The Palazzo
3327 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas, NV 89109
(702) 735-WINE
www.doublehelixwine.com
A new entry on the Vegas wine tasting scene, Double Helix serves more than 50 wines in three different-sized portions — a 2-ounce taste, a 5-ounce glass or a full bottle. Snack on treats brought over from Emeril Lagasse’s nearby restaurant Table 10, and then head to the adjoining boutique where you’ll find a wide assortment of rare and desirable wines, along with wine-related books, gifts and accessories.

Aureole

Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino
3950 Las Vegas Boulevard South
Las Vegas, NV 89119
(702) 632-7401
www.aureolelv.com
Aureole literally takes the art of wine tasting to new heights. Its nearly 10,000 bottles of wine are housed in a four-story tower, and once you’ve made your choice, your wine is fetched by one of the restaurant’s “wine angles,” which float elegantly upward with the help of a complex cable system. This is a true heaven for wine lovers.
