From the Sommelier
"WE FOCUS ON MAKING FOOD AND WINE FUN."

– Jason Smith, Master Sommelier

Wine is regarded with the highest level of passion at Bellagio. Along with the fountain show, the excitement of Cirque du Soleil's "O" and the stunning floral arrangements of the conservatory, wine is one of the focal points of the Bellagio experience. As a AAA Five Diamond award winner, we have woven wine into the fabric of our high level of service. We have a team of 16 sommeliers, including two Master Sommeliers, dedicated to cater to all of your wine desires. As Director of Wine at Bellagio, I encourage you to ask for one of our highly trained wine professionals when you are thinking about your wine selection. With over 90,000 bottles, 4,000 selections and 250 wines by the glass under a single roof, the wine team has many ways to entice you and make your Bellagio wine experience memorable.

Cheers!

Jason L. Smith, MS
Director of Wine
