Vegas Uncork’d Kicks Off with the Saber Off


The ninth annual Vegas Uncork’d by Bon Appétit, presented by Chase Sapphire Preferred, began with a splash as some of the biggest names in the culinary world united in Las Vegas. Joined by more than 20 other iconic chefs, including Emeril Lagasse, Michael Mina and Guy Savoy, chef Julian Serrano did the honors of traditionally sabering a bottle of Mionetto Prosecco on the patio of his newest restaurant, Lago at Bellagio, as the resort’s famed Fountains of Bellagio danced in the background.

Recently voted number one food festival in USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards, Vegas Uncork’d continues to grow, offering a range of intimate experiences and extravagant soirees that feature the world’s greatest chefs, sommeliers and mixologists from participating resorts Aria, Bellagio, Caesars Palace and MGM Grand. This year the festival welcomes new chefs such as Emeril Lagasse and Brian Malarkey, and includes returning favorites Gordon Ramsay, Michael Mina, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Guy Savoy and Julian Serrano.
