MORELS FRENCH STEAKHOUSE & BISTRO
Morels French Steakhouse & Bistro at The Palazzo is launching a new Wine Flight Passport Program that allows guests to sample unique red wines from around the world, some rarely found by the glass. Exclusively offered at the Wine Spectator award-winning Morels, the program features sommelier selections from the state-of-the-art enomatic wine dispensing system.
On March 1, guests will be able to purchase their passport for $5. Every time a guest buys a glass of wine, they will receive a stamp and for every 10 glasses bought, guests will receive a complimentary glass of wine. Wine selections include:
Tignanello 2011 from Italy
Chianti Badia a Passignano Antinori from Italy
Penfolds Bin 407 cabernet from Australia
Rust en Vrede cabernet from South Africa
Vanishing Point Napa cabernet
If a guest completes the passport with all 24 stamps by May 31, he or she can enter to win a magnum bottle of Bruno Paillard Champagne.
"The passport program is designed to broaden the experience for our guests. They can enjoy a new glass they've never had at the bar or on the patio with a cheese and charcuterie plate or at dinner and pair with one of our steaks," said Morels' wine director Alexandre Brard. "Now instead of traveling the world on airline flights, guests can explore through wines from around the world."
