A stay in Las Vegas can run the gamut of experiences, but if you’re haute, you know what’s up: you’re following in the footsteps of Miley Cyrus,Justin Bieber, Johnny Depp and Calvin Harris by staying in the $35,000 per night Nobu Villa owned by Robert De Niro, Nobu Matsuhisa and Meir Teper at the Nobu Hotel at Caesars Palace and digging in to Matsuhisa’s high-end Japanese cuisine at Nobu. But what if you could take things to a completely new level, and not only stay in the Villa and eat at Nobu, but have the elusive master chef, Nobu-san himself, cook your dinner and be the first to try Japanese wine that is only available in Japan? You can’t pay for that kind of experience…. but guess what? It happened.

On September 9th, Chef Nobu Matsuhisa and master of wine, Yuji Aruga of Aruga Branca wines from Katsunuma Jyozo Winery, hosted an exclusive Japanese wine dinner at Nobu Restaurant and Lounge at Caesars Palace. It was the first event of its kind ever held in Las Vegas, though Chef Nobu and Yuji have a long-standing friendship. Guests were welcomed with a variety of cocktails, as well as canapes including fried oysters and the signature crispy rice before sitting down to a seven-course Omakase dining experience paired with a variety of Argua Branca wines served cocktails and canapes upon arrival, and then will be seated for an unforgettable Omakase experience, paired with an eclectic mix of wine including blends only available in Japan, making this a once-in-a-lifetime experience for most of those attending.

To top that, founder Yoshichika Aruga started making wines in 1937 and promised to “make only wines of great quality, even if we produce just one barrel.” Meaning that what guests drank may never be available again. Courses served included sushi; Khoirabi salad; black cod; Japanese A5 Wagyu; and ginger chawanmushi. Items were paired with Aruga Branca Issehara; Aruga Branca Pipa; Aruga Alcacer DCXLI; plum wine; and Nobu’s own Koshu selection. As the evening wore on, Nobu himself walked around the room, graciously greeting each guest who had paid $395 for the experience.
