Renowned winery to partner with celebrity chef Michael Mina

for an exclusive dining experience in Las Vegas

LAS VEGAS (June 15, 2023) – Bellagio Resort & Casino will host Rudd Estate for one-night only Saturday, June 24 at 6:30 p.m. as the multigenerational winery collaborates with celebrity chef Michael Mina for an exclusive dinner experience at Michael Mina Bellagio. The special evening will be guided by Rudd Estate Winemaker Natalie Bath who will walk guests through the wine pairings for each course as Chef Mina takes guests on a culinary journey with an exquisite seasonal menu. 

“Rudd Estate is exceptional due to its Napa Valley location, well-drained soil that is ideal for growing grapes and small batch craftmanship,” said MGM Resorts International Executive Director of Wine and Master Sommelier Douglas Kim. “The company’s vineyards are farmed by a focused team who brings out the very best potential in wine from the Estate’s property season after season. We are so fortunate to have Rudd as part of this special dinner experience at Bellagio.”

Chef Mina said, “The organic and biodynamic farming practices Rudd Estate has successfully implemented over the years along with their committed team of winemakers who consistently deliver beautiful wines has set them in a class of their own. My team and I are so excited to unite with them to create a truly memorable epicurean evening at the resort.”
