Recently 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
