Benjamin Franklin once said, “Wine is constant proof that God loves us and loves to see us happy.” French wine, then, is proof that God also loves to see us appreciate the finer things in life, many of which come in liquid form. This month, Paris Las Vegas celebrates French wines with Crush, a multi-day, multi-glass event that includes plenty of wine and oenophile education. Napoleon’s hosts complimentary tastings and master-sommelier-led seminars on October 16 and 23 with themes of Wine 101 and French vs. California, respectively. There’s also a cooking demonstration at Mon Ami Gabi October 16 ($50) and a Nevada Public Radio benefit tasting ($100) on October 28. Finally, bars and restaurants across the property have wine specials, so anyone of legal age can get that smiley, pink-cheeked red wine glow.
