One of the pleasurable pursuits that we enjoy while in Las Vegas is the chance to walk across the street from our hotel and go to Tivoli Village in Summerlin. For several years we watched this area being built, and then when it finally opened we discovered a wonderful wine bar there and it is a pleasure to keep visiting there when we have a chance.
View Wine Bar is located on the second floor of one of the buildings in this rather unique mall, as it has the feeling of being in a downtown of a small community, and without the glitz of Vegas. Over the years we have enjoyed trying some of their small plates and some fun wines. This visit was no different and we saw that there were others enjoying a late lunch. My Bride tried their Grilled Cheese which was a triple cream Brie, honey, walnuts on Brioche bread. I went with Prosciutto wrapped Tiger Prawns on a bed of seaweed. We shared our dishes, and I graciously gave up a prawn and plate of seaweed for half of a great grilled cheese sandwich.
We also tried a couple of wines while we were there. My Bride enjoyed Firesteed Cellars Pinot Gris 2014. Pinot Gris is also known as Pinot Grigio and this wine was from Oregon with fruit from two different areas, a blend of Rogue Valley and Willamette Valley and it was very refreshing and crisp with a different feel from Italian Pinot Grigio wines. I had Martin Codax Albarino 2013 from Rias Baixas in Spain. This delightful white wine from the wine co-operative Martin Codax in Galicia, and to have the designation of Rias Baixas the wine must be at least seventy percent Albarino, but this wine was one hundred percent and made in Stainless Steel vats and was totally enjoyable, in fact, it was agreed that it was the best of the two wines that we had. In fact the manager at View told us that he could sit and drink this wine all afternoon, as it was one of his favorites there. I am sure that we will visit here again in the future, as there is always something new to discover at Tivoli Village.
