Every hotel and resort in Miami Beach always is looking for an edge.
Here’s the latest one from The Confidante Miami Beach. The 363-room room hotel has introduced Vino on Demand – courtesy of new Plum Wine machines – in its premium guestrooms and suites.
Created by Miami-grown tech entrepreneur David Koretz, Plum Wine gives guests a glass of wine at the touch of a button without ever having to leave their room, pick up the phone, call room service or open a full bottle. This is the first installation of the Plum Wine machine in South Florida.
At The Confidante, Plum Wine machines are dispensing Evesham Wood Pinot Noir and Justin Sauvignon Blanc. The pinot noir was selected for its lighter body, while the sauvignon blanc is a crisp white with notes of Florida citrus and grapefruit.
Tastings (2 oz.) are priced at $5.25 and $4 while a 6 oz. glass is $16 and $12 for the red and white respectively. The cost is automatically charged to the room.
Inspired by automatic espresso makers, Plum Wine automatically chills the wine to the perfect serving temperature. It also creates a virtual tasting by displaying tasting notes and thoughts from the wine maker. Using a special method of inserting a needle into the cork to suck out the wine, the machine ensures the wine doesn’t oxidize, maintaining freshness.
Guests staying in The Confidante’s Penthouse and Miranda suites through April 30, 2018, can get unlimited complimentary wine from their ensuite Plum Wine machine during the length of stay.
