Plan a Beach Date
Take advantage of Miami’s warm February weather with some beach time. Enjoy miles of sandy shore with Sagamore’s convenient beach access. Stay in the spirit of Valentine’s Day and relax in a lounge chair, listen to the waves, and take a dip in the warm water. If you and your partner are early risers, hit the shore to watch the sunrise or make a night of it and pack a moonlight beach picnic.
Taste a range of micro-vineyard selections specifically curated by Water Lion’s sommelier/ award-winning mixologist. Gain additional insight on these small batch vintners, plus basic knowledge about wine (sake, makgeolli, etc.) and spirits mixology. Choose to pair your tasting with the SoBe bar’s menu of small plates and fresh oysters. Your wine experience includes six wines (3 oz. semi-quartino pours) of your choice of sparkling, red, white, or rosé wines from a special selection of micro-vintners. Tastings are held daily from 4:30 - 6:30 p.m. Book your Valentine’s Day wine tasting ahead.
