Coming Soon! And Cruise News!

A LOT of things are coming soon, and I want to share them all with you.

I have been dropping teasers during the last two posts about a wine cruise. Here is the launch (pun intended) of the promotion for the cruise, and the launch of the new wine tasting and food events at MARC’S in Summerlin.

MARC’S Wine Reception
Wednesday, April 30, 5 to 7pm
The first of unusual bimonthly wine and cuisine events
RSVP at (702) 562-1920
Cover charge $6.00
At MARC’S Restaurant 7290 West Lake Mead Blvd.

*Help kick off a Mexican Wine Cruise with Cruise Holidays of Summerlin!
*Try out new wines from MARC’S collection!
*Enjoy live jazz guitar entertainment!
*Get in on winery visits and tastings with an exciting new cruise!
*Have an opportunity to meet:
Saskia Olsen, Cruise Line Representative
Irene King, Vegas Wineaux Instructor in wine etiquette and tasting
Cruise Holidays of Summerlin wine cruise staff for updates!

I’m so excited I can hardly stand it! Most people don’t know that there are world-class wineries in Mexico. And that until now, they had not exported their wines to the U.S. Well, all of that is changing, and they are opening up their wines and doors to us. Come and visit us during the reception and get information about the cruise!

And lest you think that I am forsaking my favorite wine country, Paso Robles, fear not. Victor Abascal of Vines on the Marycrest will be in on the 26th for still yet another party at our friends at Vino 100. Come by and say hi, and sample some of Victor’s wonderful wines!

And last but not least, there are major changes afoot for the Vegas Wineaux website and Blog! We are hitting the 21st century in full stride!

There will be a completely new, modern look to the website, and the Blog will be incorporated within the web structure. In addition to regular Blog postings and schedules of classes and other events, there will be a variety of new articles and occasional submissions by guest authors. Slideshows, podcasts, and picture galleries will add to the multimedia appeal. We will have pages showcasing our favorite wineries, winemakers, wine folks, friends, and Wineaux! There will be Wineaux Taste Notes, recipes, and other new features.

As you may be able to tell, I’m very excited about these new changes and have been working very hard to bring everything together. I am calculating that the launch of the new site will take place *about* the first weekend of May.

Stay tuned and keep on sippin’!!
