Wine was once such an expensive commodity that the rich conspicuously spilled it on their golden capes instead of wasting it invisibly in their stomachs. Afford enough wine to braggadociously spill it with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of wine and tippling accessories at Bella Vino Wine Shoppe in North Las Vegas.
Whether you've come for a specific hard-to-find pinot from a small family vineyard or to peruse the impressive selection for inspiration, the professional staff at Bella Vino can answer any of your wine-related wine questions and admirably tolerate unrelated whines. Bella Vino carries more than 1,000 varieties of wine, ensuring that no oenophile will be left behind when it comes to taste. The specialty selection is impeccable, so if you are an accomplished aficionado of grape bloods, stroll confidently up to the counter and ask the merchants for the current market values of some of the best wine available. If you'd rather peruse the inventory for yourself, you'll encounter bottles of liquid treasure such as Redtree pinot noir ($12.95), Three Clicks sauvignon blanc ($19.95), Cucao chardonnay ($14.95), and Sole Luna Red ($14.95).
Nothing helps you get in character for a starring role in your local theater's stage adaptation of Frasier like wine, so grab today's Groupon and do some serious method acting at Bella Vino. Visiting the wine shop is like immersing yourself in a self-referential oaken barrel. The walls are lined with handsome wood shelving displaying obsidian bottles, and vine-decked barrels support featured pours throughout the open space. Practice your swilling techniques under the watchful eye of an expert during one of Bella Vino Wine Shoppe's complimentary wine tastings, held every Thursday from 5–8 p.m. and Saturday from 6–8 p.m.
