Las Vegas based ME Fine Wines expanding into more than 20 new Cities and States

What happens in Vegas doesn't always stay in Vegas. Las Vegas fine wine and craft beer merchants ME Fine Wines announced today some rapid and vast expansion

PRLog - March 27, 2014 - LAS VEGAS -- Long credited as being among the pioneers for the Las Vegas fine wine and craft beers movement and for the past 10+ years the company's founders have played crucial roles in helping to shape the Las Vegas wine and beer scene. It is because of this reputation that they have been asked and agreed to opening up shop in NYC/NJ, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Tampa, Orlando, Miami, Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Milwaukee.  More cities are to be announced in upcoming weeks.

So who are these guys? Joe Muscaglione and Paul Ellis are co-founders and partners in ME Fine Wines. “Most people can spell Ellis – the “E” in ME, but most have a little difficulty spelling Muscaglione“  states  Paul Ellis, half-jokingly.

More on Joe and Paul later.

The highest rated wine from South Africa to date?  Yep. They were the first to bring it to Las Vegas.

The highest rated Canadian wine to date?  Yep. They were the first and still represent it, only now they represent the top three Canadian wines to date.

The first and only premium wines from China? Check. Dragon’s Hollow, gaining a very loyal following remains the only premium wines from China in the USA. Having said that, it is the Italian wine portfolio, with an unprecedented 30 plus Three Glass wines from Italy (Italy’s highest honor) and dozens of 95+ point rated wine that is unmatched.

With Italy, an obvious dominant strength, it is no wonder they were the first to introduce into the Las Vegas  market Italy’s finest craft brews. They have introduced cutting-edge brands such as Panil, Bruton and Collesi and virtually every other craft beer from Italy that you see in the market today. But they didn’t stop with Italy.  Brands such as Hitachino from Japan and Belgium's highest rated beers - St Bernardus, Piraat, Gulden Draak, Cantillon, Fantome, Achel,  Struise, as well as Germany's  Kulmbacher,  all were introduced to Sin City by them.

Paul R Ellis one of the founders was the former Wine Director for MGM Grand Resort, Charlie Palmer Steak and Aquaknox.  Paul also served as the South West Regional Manager for Champagne Roederer/Cristal and instructed at Le Cordon Bleu; The Art Institute and CSN, Las Vegas. Prior to moving to Las Vegas Paul spent a dozen years as Wine Instructor at UCLA (helping to develop the certification course) and was a consultant to Christies Auction House, Beverly Hills.  It was in 2008 that Paul began working together with his friend, Joe Muscaglione

Like Paul, Joe Muscaglione too is a food and wine professional with three decades of experience.  Joe is an award winning Chef and former restaurateur, sommelier and was one of the first Beverage Directors for famed Babbo in NYC. Joe was a wine consultant for Winebow and called on many of the metropolitan areas top restaurants before moving to Las Vegas and was recruited as the opening Beverage Director for TAO, Las Vegas

In a city well known for importing talented food and wine professionals from all over the world, it is nice to see a local company in demand on a national scale.
