We thought every day was National Drink Wine Day, but apparently it is officially on May 25. We never need an excuse to indulge in a glass of vino, but if you’re looking for one, this is it. If you want to raise a toast to the holiday, here are five spots to drink wine in Vegas.

Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis has opened one of the newest Las Vegas wine bars in town at her new Pronto by Giada restaurant. The wine bar, located adjacent to the restaurant, serves a nice variety of Italian and California wines. There’s a great selection of sparkling, whites and reds available in 3, 5 or 9-ounce pours, as well as by the bottle. You can also try flights of wine (3 ounces each) if you want to try a little of everything.

Wines are divided into categories like Giada’s Favorites (La Marca Prosecco, Whispering Angel Cotes de Provence and Joseph Phelps Freestone Vineyards Pinot Noir), Taste of Piedmont, Taste of Tuscany,
Stars of Italy and more.

We love that Giada also serves her delicious bar bites with the wine. Try the house marinated olives, goat cheese stuffed peppers, bacon wrapped dates, a cheese board and more.

The Rio Wine Cellar & Tasting Room is home to an amazing wine collection with 3,000 bottles

Rio Wine Cellar & Tasting Room

The Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino is home to one of our favorite hidden gems. The Wine Cellar & Tasting Room is located downstairs in the Masquerade Village and it feels like you are going into an actual wine cellar as you descend the staircase. The inviting space features brick walls, arches and comfortable leather sofas to relax on.

The venue is home to an amazing wine collection with 3,000 bottles valued at more than $3 million. They have some rare collectible wines including an 1800 Madeira from Thomas Jefferson’s cellar.

While you won’t be sipping on that, you can try more than 100 wines by the glass including hard-to-find boutique wines and some more common selections. Wine stewards at the bar can help you choose a glass or a flight to try.

The Wine Cellar & Tasting Room also offers a food and wine pairing menu with cheeses and breads.

If you’re looking for a fun night out with friends, they also offer Sip & Paint nights where you can paint your own masterpiece as you enjoy wine and appetizers.

Pro tip: The best way to enjoy wine at Mon Ami Gabi is out on their Strip-side patio underneath Paris Las Vegas’ replica Eiffel Tower.

Strip House at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino

Nothing pairs better with a big, juicy steak than a nice glass of wine. Strip House Las Vegas steakhouse at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino has one of the most unique and extensive (we’re talking 6,000 bottles) wine lists to choose from. The list is so great they were given Wine Spectator’s Best Of Award for Excellence in 2017.

Wines by the glass include sparkling wines, whites from California, France, Oregon, Russian River Valley and reds from everywhere from France to Washington. There are a variety of reserve wines served at cellar temperature from California, France and Italy.

If you want more than a glass but not a whole bottle, Strip House has half bottles available. They also have a list of some unique wines divided into Noteworthy Reds and Off The Beaten Path Whites. For dessert, you’ll find a nice variety of sweet wines and ports.

True wine connoisseurs will enjoy the restaurant’s Bucket List Wine list. You can try once-in-a-lifetime wines like a 1982 Chateaux Mouton Rothschild Bordeaux or a 1966 Chateau Petrus Bordeaux.

The restaurant uses the Coravin system, which allows you to sample from these impressive wines without removing the cork. That means you can have a taste without spending your kid’s college tuition money on a full bottle.
