Wine Pairings, Gambling and Casino Games

wine glass pic Wine Pairings, Gambling and Casino GamesWhen you think of playing casino games, you usually think of someone having a martini, some vodka, or the old standby of beer.  However, there are many that prefer a good glass of wine while they are playing at the casino.  Let’s take a look at a few wine pairings while playing at the casino.

A wine that is frequently enjoyed by casino guests is the Carneros Chardonnay by Rombauer Vineyards.  This classic win is one that is frequently served at Station Casinos in  Las Vegas.  Another very popular wine comes from the Napa Valley and is the 2005 Conn Creek Anthology.  While this is a solid wine to enjoy at the tables, it is also often enjoyed with a good steak.

Of course, some of you prefer to play US casinos online and save the expense of going to the casino.  For you, try the Gaja Sito Moresco made by Langhe Rosso.  It has a nice fruity taste, but is also elegant and provides a solid balance.

Now, there are other wine lovers out there that have a little bit more of a refined pallet.  Those of you that fall into this category would be wise to inquire with the casino host about any premium or specialty wines that the property may offer.  The Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas provides the ultimate in choice for patrons of the Aureole restaurant.  They have over 10,000 bottles of brand from all over the world on the premises.  In addition they have won the Wine Spectators Award for the last 12 years straight.

Some of you probably are wondering why someone would want to drink wine while playing casino games at a casino.  First, those players want to relax and have a good time.  Also, they are not looking to get hammered at the table.  Next, they like to enjoy the experience and a plain beer or shot of whiskey is more like something you would do at home or at the bar, not while gambling.  Others find that they feel a bit more sophisticated drinking wine over other drinks.

Hopefully some of the examples of wines above will give you an idea of some of the choices you can run across when playing at a casino.  For more information about the wines a property has to offer, contact your casino host.  If they don’t have the information, they will know who you will need to ask.  Good luck to you at the tables.

    We did almost beat the shiit out of someone for betting the don;t pass line and talking shiit to us. He didn’t like what we had to say back and got all bent out of shape. Of course he shut his f’n mouth when me and Beej stepped to him. Shiit happens at 5 am with a lot of Johnny Walker Black going on. A 16 hour drinking binge.

    I like to drink white russians while I play Blackjack at 6 in the morning.
