LAS VEGAS (July 16, 2014) –  Bellagio Resort & Casino will partner with Huneeus Vintners for a wine pairing dinner featuring award-winning chef Michael Mina at his eponymous restaurant, MICHAEL MINA Bellagio Wednesday, August 20 at 7 p.m. The event will tantalize taste buds with a six-course menu created by Mina and MICHAEL MINA Bellagio Executive Chef Ben Jenkins. Each course will be paired with wine selections chosen by the evening’s hosts, Chef Michael Mina, Bellagio Director of Wine and Master Sommelier Jason Smith and Master Sommelier and Huneeus Estate Director Larry Stone.

Huneeus Vintners includes Quintessa, Flowers Vineyard & Winery and Faust, three wineries managed by vintner Agustin Huneeus, a wine expert who has been discovering great vineyards around the world for 50 years. Quintessa produces a red Bordeaux style blend of five varietals grown on the estate: cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, petit verdot and carménère. Flowers focuses on lively and complex chardonnay and pinot noir from the coolest areas of the Sonoma Coast.
