Choosing a bottle of wine is a 750-milliliter commitment not everyone is willing to make, especially when the quality and price can vary so greatly. Hence, the Enomatic wine preservation system. Not only does it dole out 1-, 3- and 5-ounce portions and preserve the remainder in the bottle, but it makes it possible for the wine-curious to sample to their heart’s and wallet’s content. But no place beats M Resort’s wine bar, The Hostile Grape, for sheer volume—160 wines plus a full bar. On Fridays, Rock ’n’ Roll Wine rolls in at 5 p.m. to pair featured wines with the sounds of up-and-coming bands and musicians. Some might call it an embarrassment of riches; we prefer to call it happy hour.
