Mohegan Sun's all-new Wine Wednesdays promotion kicks off Feb. 6, with tastings, dinners and champagne jazz nights each week.

Todd English's Tuscany will host a "Tastings & Tapas" event at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every month. For $20, taste small tapas plates along with three different wines. Each session is led by a wine expert, who will host a discussion and Q&A about the pairings. Advance tickets are available at Tuscany.

Each Wednesday, Bar Americain and Tuscany will host four-course wine dinners, with a weekly $75 regional American menu at the Bobby Flay hotspot and a $95 Tuscan menu at Todd English's eatery. Reservations are not required.

"Champagne & Jazz" is held every Wednesday night in the Vista Lounge from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., with Veuve Clicquot champagne cocktails and a live jazz band. There is no cover charge.

Wines featured at the tastings and dinners vary by season, with California wines highlighted February through April, French wines May through July, Spanish wines August through October and Italian wines November through January.
