The Count, the Consuls and the Carmenere

Count Guido Roberto DeiroRecently Consul Paulina Biggs Sparkuhl was introduced by the Honorary Consul of the Principality of Monaco to Count Guido Deiro and his lovely wife, Countess Joan.

A legend in Las Vegas for many years, Count Deiro administered airports for Howard Hughes when Hughes also lived in Las Vegas, and is the best known local auctioneer for a generation.   The four discussed international affairs, arts, science and Las Vegas history.  Consul Biggs Sparkuhl took advantage of the occasion to introduce the Count and Countess to Chilean wine, bringing a special reserve 2005 Carmenere.  The four enjoyed a tremendous evening at Villa Kismet, the Count’s estate in Las Vegas.

“My appreciative thanks to Paulina for my first taste of Chilean wine. One does not usually open a gift and drink it immediately, but when I saw what it was there was no stopping me.”   –  Count Deiro
