Wine Question?

Hi All! Ok here we go....Being 60 years old! Oh my God that's scary!! Anyway I am just in the last few years getting a taste for some wine! Now my question is by ordering a Mascado or a Stella Rosa from the cocktail waitress are these considered a (pay drink) and if so do any of you know what would be a comparable brand name that is considered a (comp) drink? I usually just drink a beer,Bloody Mary,or something like that.... I would like to order this taste of wine but have no idea what to ask for that compares to Mascado or Stella Rosa! Thank You All for your Help....

Each property tends to have different versions of wine they offer on the casino floor. Wynn/Aria/Bellagio offer the best comp beverages in my opinion. I might start with those properties. Tip them a bit more up front and order 2 glasses so you can find a fast favorite :-)

You can always ask. But you will rarely get a specific brand of wine from a cocktail waitress in a casino. Lower end places will have "red" and "white", maybe a "pink" (rose). Nicer joints might have a choice of a few varietals, such as merlot or cabernet on the red side. Generally bars just don't keep a huge variety of wines.

Now, if you go to a restaurant, especially one with a good wine list, you will have many more choices. You may well find a specific wine you like.

In both cases, its good to know what it is about the specific wines you like. If you can tell the cocktail waitress "I like dry whites" she may be able to steer you in the right directly, if they have a choice. This is especially true in a nice restaurant where they may have a dedicated sommelier. Even if not the wait staff is usually well trained on the different wines. My son waited tables at Olive Garden for a while. They trained and tested them on the wines they offered and had them sample all the different choices. At a nice, or even middle-of-the-road, Vegas restaurant you should be able to have a conversation with the staff and find a wine you like.

You are just now discovering wine and like a lot of people you are leaning towards sweeter wines, such as Moscato. Getting wine on the casino floor is a risky situation. I'm too much of a wine snob to try that but you could always just ask your CW if you could get a glass of Moscato and if she doesn't have that, ask if she has a Reisling. Not as sweet as Moscato but close enough that I'm willing to bet you would like it.

I'm full of wine advice, it's what I do for a living. If you have any questions please feel free to pm me. Although, I am leaving for Vegas tomorrow. Whoop, whoop.

I drink wine from the cocktail waitresses. I order red. Sometimes they have merlot or cab. Sometimes it's drinkable and sometimes it's not. You're not going to get Moscado or Stella Rosa..

I would agree that the wine a casino gives for free woukd likely be a wine i wouldnt drink..If you are willing to pay for a nice glass if wine, forget the CW and head to the bar,

If you want Moscado you'll have to go to a bar and see if they sell it.

The better the wine the less the hangover, and while i will agree Parx red is drinkable, it is not enjoyable...imho
