Locals and visitors to Las Vegas will once again get the chance to immerse themselves in the flavor exploration of wines, spirits, craft beers and culinary delights of the USA TODAY Wine & Food Tour. The event is coming to Nevada in the fall, with the tour scheduled to arrive on October 26. The event will be hosted by MGM Resorts International and headlined by renowned chefs from across the country.
According to Doug Wilson, vice president and general manager of the USA TODAY NETWORK, the Wine & Food Tour was part of “more than 500 events that engaged over half a million consumers” in 2018. This year’s tour is almost certain to be even bigger, with a chance to tap into Vegas’ deep, local community roots and “produce exciting experiences” for the city and all the other city destinations along the way.
This year’s event welcomes Alex Guarnaschelli from The Food Network’s “Chopped” show to Vegas, along with another special guest, Antoni Porowski of Netflix’s “Queer Eye”. WWE wrestling stars Brie and Nikki Bella will also be present, showcasing their very own Belle Radici wine brand that has proved an instant success. Meanwhile, special guest chefs for the Vegas event are due to be confirmed in the coming weeks and months.
