Top 10 Wines to Drink in a Casino

Updated on December 14, 2019

I am a wine lover and I am not ashamed of it. I love everything about it: the smell, the taste, the sour touch it leaves in my mouth, the dizziness and relaxation it gives me after one glass. Anytime I go to a restaurant, the part I love the most is ordering my wine.

Last week I took a short break from work and went to Las Vegas. I was surprised to see casinos have really expanded the number of wines they are displaying. Last time I went to Vegas, although I have to admit it was a long time ago, they only had listed two or three types of wine. So the question that arises is: what kind of wine should you drink in a casino? I made a list of top ten wines that I've found and enjoyed in this kind of location.

10. Beringer California Cabernet Sauvignon

This wine has a rich taste in which you can easily distinguish blackberries and cherries, as well as a slight flavour of oak. If you are interested in wines, you probably know this one is made in one of the oldest wineries in the U.S., in California's Napa Valley.

9. Boom Boom Washington State Syrah

Occupying the 9th place, this wine comes from the well-known Charles Smith. With a wealthy and explosive taste, just as the name suggests, this is a very manly wine, with an intense tobacco flavour.

8. Rex Hill Willamette Valley Pinot Noir

This wine is definitely a classic. Brought to you from Oregon, this wine has that earthy flavour that only old wines have. Other notes are present too: blackberries, plums and dark cherries. Whether you go to casinos or not, please buy this wine and keep it properly stored for ten years. I am positive the result will be magnificent.

7. Vino Pinot Grigio

I was surprised to find among the listings of the casino this wonderful bottle of wine, which by the way is one of my favourites. Based on guava and passion fruit, this kind of wine is usually best with fish, but let me tell you I enjoyed mine with a plate of slots as well.

6. Carmel Road Monterey County Chardonnay

As we climb up to the top, let me present you this Carmel Road Chardonnay. This type of wine will surely be appreciated by women thanks to its vanilla touch, as well as for the discrete taste of pears. It's a rather sweet wine, and it's a pleasure to drink it.

5. Sonoma Vineyards Sonoma County Chardonnay

As you can easily notice, chardonnays are among my favourite types of wine. I have to say that this one surprised me, as I expected less from it. With a fruit flavour—although, except for pears, I didn't manage to recognise any others—this wine is bright and light.

4. The Brander Vineyard Santa Ynez Valley Sauvignon Blanc

This wine is a combination between Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Blanc, and Riesling. Although it comes in a pretty basic bottle, I can guarantee you that what's inside the bottle is actually pretty complex. I really like the dryness, as well as the slight shadow of acid.

3. Willamette Valley Vineyards Pinot Gris

We are finally here, the 3rd place occupant is this rich, deep flavoured kind of wine. With notes of pears and melon, along with some discrete floral touches, this Oregon wine is simply delighting. Drinking it is like walking into a beautiful, flowered garden.

2. Paraiso Monterey County Riesling

This is a surprisingly refreshing wine, probably thanks to the ocean-influenced climate from Monterey. Is has a discrete nectarine scent and a dry texture. It's a perfect combination and, not only it smells delicious, but it tastes delicious too. I will definitely buy this wine as soon as I get home.

1. Beringer Third Century Syrah

Finally, the best of all, this wine has an amazing silky texture and a smoothness that words can't describe. There are no spicy notes, which I truly appreciate, and provides a dry sweetness on your lips. I recognised scents of plums and blackberries that really make a terrific addition to this bottle of wine.

I am truly happy casinos decided to update their wine offering. I didn't expect to find such a delightful list of my favourite drinks. I hope they also decide to keep it like this, as I must admit I enjoyed it.
