The Confidante Miami Beach, part of the Unbound Collection by Hyatt, has partnered with tech entrepreneur David Koretz of Plum Wine to offer guests a taste of top wines right in their premium guestrooms. The Vino on Demand machines dispense wine at the touch of a button so oenophiles can enjoy a glass without having to pick up the phone, open a full bottle or leave their room.
The new dispensers are stocked with light-bodied Evesham Wood pinot noir and Justin sauvignon blanc, which is packed with notes of Florida orange and grapefruit. The wine is chilled to the perfect tasting temperature, and the machine also displays notes from the winemaker as well as tips for tasting.
Tasting pours are two ounces and start at $4. Six-ounce glasses of the wines are $12 for the sauvignon blanc and $16 for the pinot noir. Costs are automatically charged to the guestroom check.
Guests staying in the hotel's Penthouse and Miranda suites through April 30 will have the opportunity to try the machines for free.
Rates for the spring at the 379-room Confidante Miami Beach start at $769 per night.
