34th Annual UNLVino Grand Tasting 2008 at the Paris Hotel Casino

This was the 34th year for UNLVino which is an amazing feat. UNLVino has now become North America's
largest single day wine tasting event.

The Paris Hotel and Casino hosts this renown tasting in it's Paris Las Vegas Ballroom. Last year for UNLVino 2007 8,000 guests sampled 1,100 wines from more that 350 wineries from all over the world. UNLVino has grown into not just a wine tasting event but a live auction as well that includes trips, art, golf and much more.

When you walk into the Ballroom and see the size
and scope of this event you can only been impressed. There entire ballroom is full of wineries, water, art, food and a separate section
for the live auction which gets bigger each year.

34 Years ago UNLVino started as a small event
to help raise money for the students at UNLV.
Southern Wine and Spirits has made this event a world wide phenomena Were wine experts and novices come together from all over the world to enjoy the great City of Las Vegas, taste some renown wines and most importantly "Take a Sip for Scholarship." This event is about education as well. Southern Wine and Spirits Master Sommelier Louis DeSantos gave Scott from Vino Las Vegas quite an education on Sake.

This is one event that will be around for many years to come. We have ready heard that the 35th UNLVino in 2009 is in the works and will be bigger than ever. Join us as we talk to a few guests , sample the food and of course talk about the wine
