From its humble beginnings in the Southern Wine & Spirits warehouse, the annual UNLVino has grown into Las Vegas premier wine, spirits and food event, and serves as the year’s largest scholarship fundraiser for the University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ (UNLV) William F. Harrah College of Hospitality students. Founded in 1974 by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits Senior Managing Director Larry Ruvo and former College of Hospitality dean Jerry Vallen, UNLVino began as a small wine tasting, with proceeds going to UNLV’s hotel college fund. As UNLVino’s popularity grew, so too did its hosting venues, moving from the warehouse into UNLV’s Thomas and Mack Center, and eventually expanding to numerous Las Vegas resorts as fans and community sponsors took notice. Entering its 45th year, UNLVino has raised millions of dollars in scholarships and has become one of the city’s must-attend events of the year.
