WINEAUX the Perfect Spot to Enjoy Wine

What a marvelous evening we had at the brand new Wineaux, a “wine market, bar and escape” from James Beard Award-winning Chef Shawn McClain, Master Sommelier Nick Hetzel, and restaurateurs Richard and Sarah Camarota. The party was last week, open first to media and followed by patiently waiting patrons—most from the new real estate complex UnCommons in Southwest Las Vegas, across the street from Durango Casino & Resort. Wineaux is now open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Wednesday, Thursday, Sunday and Monday; and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.

Wineaux’s collection is designed to discover great wines, from the finest of the classics and many new ones that will fast become your favorites. Well-versed wine buyers, searching for that oh-so-special bottle for their collection, will bask in Wineaux’s extensive options. The fantastic retail experience is guided by expert staff, who will help you to discover plenty of new wines—either by the glass or bottle—at every price point. The dynamic and diverse collection ranges from rare icons such as Egon Müller to new finds like Champagne producer Jean Josselin.

Created by Chef McClain, Wineaux’s menu asks patrons to pair their wines with several shareables and small plates. Some of the favorites include the plateau fruits de mer, which includes prawns, hamachi and caviar, oysters, and Dungeness crab; a sakura smoked ham sandwich, made with comté cheese, aioli, tomato and wild arugula; beef tartare, served with salsa macha, pickled onion, olive and Tokyo turnip; West Coast oysters, served with a cucumber kosho mignonette; chopped chicories, served with Gorgonzola dressing, toasted walnuts, pear and aged balsamic; and for dessert, a dark chocolate pot de crème, among others.

There is a large retail space featuring chilled bottles of white and sparkling wines and a takeout counter showcasing charcuterie, smoked salmon, gourmet cheese, caviar, and other tasty luxuries. They also offer a curbside pickup service.

Wineaux is an impressive 2,500 square feet of mixed retail and space for dining and drinking. They offer a mix of lounge-style seating, traditional tables, a 10-seat bar and the tasting table, which is surrounded by multi-tiered presentations of Wineaux’s robust wine collection and seats 12. Wineaux will add a 600-square-foot outdoor patio next year.
