3rd Annual Stirling Art & Wine Walk In Las Vegas

Las Vegas might sometimes seem like the most unlikely place, but it is home to several dozen international and exceptionally talented artists. The climate, lifestyle, and continual buzz of international visitors has attracted them.

This Thursday, April 15, is an opportunity to see some of their work at the 3rd Annual Art & Wine Walk at The Stirling Club in Las Vegas. The Art & Wine Walk features about 20 different local artists and six different wines from three different wineries. It's an excellent and rare opportunity to see the work in the comfortable surroundings of the most exclusive club in Las Vegas and meet many of the artists in person.

Highlighted Wines From Handley Cellars

Handley Cellars, operated by winemakers Milla Handley and Kristen Barnhisel, is an organic certified estate vineyard in the Anderson Valley, known for its cool foggy nights and bright sunny days. The Handley family also owns a Dry Creek Valley (Sonoma County) vineyard near the Russian River. Featured wines* include:

Cabernet Sauvignon, Louis M. Martini, Sonoma County, 2006

Highlights From William Hill Estate

The William Hill Estate was designed with winemaking in mind. The vineyard is situated just outside the winery door giving winemaker Ralf Holdenried the freedom to be involved in every aspect of the winemaking process. It is located just off the Silverado Trail in Southern Napa on the Silverado Bench. Featured wines include:

Chardonnay, William Hill Estate, Napa Valley. 2006
Merlot, William Hill Estate, Napa Valley, 2006
