It seems appropriate that former poker player H. William (Bill) Harlan would be hosting a Wynn wine dinner series event in Las Vegas. And if you, too, have a spare ten grand sitting around, you can be part of this extravaganza, combining a meal from a Wynn chef with wines chosen from Domain H. William Harlan.
Naturally, you’ll dine at one of Wynn’s most extravagant locations, whether that’s the 18th hole of the golf club, a two-story Encore Duplex suite or a location which is so special that it hasn’t been announced yet.
“The series offers attendees an opportunity to sample a variety of the most elusive labels from Harlan’s time-honored wineries – including Harlan Estate, BOND and Promontory – paired with specially curated menus from Wynn’s acclaimed chefs.”–Wynn Press Release
Wynn Wine Dinner Series
Each dinner will take place this fall and be limited to 20 guests. You will also become an immediate member of your chosen winery’s wine club, “bypassing the lengthy waitlist.” Wynn will also kick in one night in a Wynn Tower Suite so you’ll have a place to collapse after the indulgence.
You have three options to choose from.
Enjoy Dinner at an Encore Duplex on September 10
Your first option begins with a Krug Champagne reception, followed by dinner from SW Steakhouse executive chef Mark LoRosso and accompanied by wine pairings chosen by second-generation proprietor Amanda Harlan.
You’ll have a six-course meal, headlined by a choice of Turbot Filet, Boneless Quail and Japanese Kobe Beef. No word on where they find quail without bones. Each course will, of course, have wine with it.
Bond on October 15 at the 18th Hole
If that doesn’t meet your tastes, feel free to drop by in mid-October for the Krug Champagne reception, after which, you’ll eat on the 18th hole of Wynn Golf Club. Cooking for your tonight will be Chef Joshua Smith of Wynn’s Delilah with, of course, the requisite wine pairings.
No word on whether a round of golf is included.
Mizumi Dinner in November
And if you’re not ready to make a location commitment yet, sign up for the November 12 dinner, which will be hosted by Mizumi Executive Chef Min Kim, with wine pairings chosen by William Harlan.
The wine will be a Promontory blend, a region that Wynn describes as “a world apart from the Napa Valley that most people experience. Within this secluded territory—near the heart of the valley, but completely hidden—two distinct fault lines mark the divides among volcanic, sedimentary, and metamorphic formations.”
Only In Las Vegas
This dinner-wine series could only take place in Las Vegas, a city known as a mecca for decadence and excess. While 60 people are enjoying their $10,000 meals, there will no doubt be a player in the high-roller baccarat room betting that much on the turn of a card.
It’s just another day in Sin City.
