Wine Country welcomes the spirit of Autumn at Bellagio’s conservatory & botanical gardens
Authentic Cider Mill, Vintage Wine Press and Aged Stone Face Featured in Fall Floral Exhibition
The sights, scents and sounds of the harvest season have arrived at Bellagio?s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens. On display through Nov. 24, the captivating fall exhibition takes guests on a romantic journey through wine country, without leaving Las Vegas. This year?s show boasts a bevy of seasonal visuals including an authentic cider mill, a vintage wine press and an aged stone face.
Upon entrance to the Conservatory?s stunning display sits a covered bridge surrounded by flora dressed in traditional harvest colors: green, red and orange. Visitors are encouraged to walk across the bridge as large ginger leaves float silently overhead. Lying in the South Garden is a
6-foot-tall moss-coated aged stone face emerging from the grassy ground. A floral pumpkin made of 3,000 orange carnations and moss-covered boulders creates an intoxicating autumn atmosphere.
Also in the South Garden and surrounded by birch trees, the sounds of the harp, violin and cello will entertain guests daily from 5 p.m. ? 6 p.m. as they travel through wine country.
Steps away, in the West Garden, a 40-foot-tall authentic cider mill gently flows into a rocky pond protected by a 15-foot-tall, traditional scarecrow. Hand-blown wine bottles, demijohns and petite and plentiful pumpkins awaken the spirit of autumn at every turn.
The North Garden is home to a 1920s vintage-aged wine press and 20-foot-tall talking tree showered with wine grapes. On each side of the tree, grape and gourd-filled cornucopias spill onto the grassy earth while inviting guests to explore the wonder of wine. In conjunction with the Bellagio Gallery of Fine Art?s exhibit ?Claude Monet: Impressions of Light,? the Conservatory has created a floral interpretation of Claude Monet?s Grainstack (sunset). Located in the Giardini corner, the recreated painting is fitted within a 6-foot tall elaborately carved frame.
The fall exhibit within Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is complimentary to the public and open daily, 24 hours a day.
