NOVE ITALIANO AND LABOR WINES LAUNCH NEW FAMILY-STYLE DINING EXPERIENCE WITH ‘SUNDAY FEAST’
Labor Wines & Local Swine dinner kicks off line-up, November 4
LAS VEGAS (October 17, 2012) – NOVE Italiano at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas and Labor Wines introduce ‘Sunday Feast’, a new family-style dinner offered each quarter. Featuring a set seasonal menu and a comfortable atmosphere, the new social dining experience launches with Labor Wines & Local Swine event on November 4 at 6 p.m.
The feast features a four-course meal prepared by NOVE’s Executive Chef Geno Bernardo paired with Labor Wines from founder and Las Vegas resident Corey Nyman. Guests, whether strangers or not, are encouraged to interact by using provided conversation-starter cards while dining together at a large communal table. The cards also will serve as raffle tickets to win the many prizes up for grabs.
With a focus on local produce and fall flavors, Chef Geno will provide pork from local heritage pigs raised at his farm located in Nevada. Taking the farm-to-table philosophy one step further, Geno established this small farm to fulfill his produce needs for the restaurant. To complement the dining experience, dinner will be paired with Labor Wines of the Willamette Valley, an up and coming Oregon winery which was started by Corey Nyman and his business partner, Richard Oppenheimer.

NOVE Italiano sits atop the Palms Casino Resort’s Fantasy Tower and combines inspired design, superb Italian cuisine and unsurpassed energy with some of the city’s most spectacular views. Named #1 Italian Restaurant in Las Vegas by Orbitz in 2009, NOVE Italiano transforms perceptions of Italian dining just as N9NE Steakhouse, situated in the original Palms tower, revolutionized the American steakhouse. Created by Executive Chef Geno Bernardo, the menu offers a wide range of crudo (which means “raw” in Italian, often ceviche or sashimi), thin-crust pizzas, a variety of steaks and happy hour specials, including $7 select wine, premium cocktails and signature dishes. The restaurant is a unique blend of classical and modern elements, an intriguing combination that permeates both the dining room and the kitchen. NOVE Italiano is open Sunday through Thursday from 6 – 10:30 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 6 – 11 p.m. Connect with NOVE on Twitter @NOVELV and on Facebook.
Birthed in 2010, entrepreneurs Dick Oppenheimer and Corey T. Nyman partnered to launch Labor Wines, a boutique Oregon winery. Starting with a 2009 Pinot Noir from the Willamette Valley, Labor Wines began with only 280 cases in its initial production. Oppenheimer and Nyman continued the growth in 2012 introducing a 2011 Pinot Blanc and 2010 Pinot Noir while furthering the business and expanding both the quantity of wine and distribution. With a sincere passion for wine and hard work, Oppenheimer and Nyman decided upon the name Labor Wines from their belief that “Everything takes Labor to accomplish. Without Labor, there would be no end result and no satisfaction. Labor is the driving force throughout history of how to get things done. From Labor is the idea that hard work presents rewards and what better way to embrace that vision – from our hands to yours.” Labor is distributed in Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Tennessee and Texas as well as available for direct sales in over 30 states.
