JUSTIN VINEYARDS (Twitter: JustinVineyards)
Justin Vineyards is a family-owned and operated winery making estate grown and produced wines. The property was founded in 1981 by Justin and Deborah Baldwin when they planted their 160-acre property to the major Bordeaux varietals and created their Estate vineyard. The winery is located in the Paso Robles appellation of California’s Central Coast. The region’s first grapes were planted in 1779 by Franciscan missionaries and today are home to the third highest concentration of wineries in the United States. Their desire is to make world class wines that reflect the unique soils and climate of their California Central Coast property. Emphasis is placed on making Bordeaux-style blends and single varietals, combining Old World tradition with New World techniques. For more information, visit http://www.justinwines.com/.

Nove Italiano sits atop the Palms Casino Resort’s Fantasy Tower and combines inspired design, superb Italian cuisine and unsurpassed energy—not to mention some of the city’s most spectacular views. Named #1 Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas by Orbitz in 2009, Nove Italiano transforms perceptions of Italian dining just as N9NE Steakhouse, situated in the original Palms tower, revolutionized the American steakhouse. Created by Executive Chef Geno Bernardo, the menu offers a wide range of crudo (which means “raw” in Italian, often ceviche or sashimi), thin-crust pizzas, variety of steaks and a large selection of wine and premium cocktails. Seasonal dishes added to the menu this spring include “farm to fork” Nove mixed green salad, spring brodo (which means “broth” in Italian) and osso bucco. Nove Italiano offers the Pomegranita, a cool and sweet libation that combines Ketel One Oranje, POM, Pama Liqueur and simple syrup. Every Tuesday is local ladies’ night, where local females receive 50% off their entire food bill, as well as cocktails and wine by the glass. Every Thursday, Nove offers happy hour, where guests can enjoy $7 specialty dishes and cocktails in the lounge from 6 – 8 p.m. In addition, Chef Geno hosts an exclusive cooking class every other month, giving food enthusiasts an up-close-and-personal look at dishing up classic Italian fare.
