This weekend brings the 8th Annual Wine Amplified Festival to Mandalay Bay. This over-the-top event features over 50 wineries and 150 different wines, spans two days, and tickets include both wine tasting and entertainment.
Kicking the event off on Friday, September 6th is Bubbles and Chocolate, an exclusive champagne and dessert tasting, featuring Mandalay Bay Pastry Chef Christophe Feyt. Hosted by Moet & Chandon, and held at the Moorea Beach Club, festival attendees will indulge in decadent taste, wine, and musical treats, with a concert by Collective Soul and Vertical Horizon.
On Saturday, the venue changes to the Mandalay Beach, where the wine will flow. Chardonnay, Chianti, Rose, Champagne, Syrah, and Cabernet from around the world will be served up along with $5 taste treats from Aureole, Border Grill, Mix, and StripSteak (VIPS will get a special menu from Rick Noonan and his newly opened Boiler Room). There will also be special performances on two stages from Gavin DeGraw, Austin Brown, Josh Krajciz, and Lady Reiko.
