    The Coravin Era is Here

    For centuries, the only way to enjoy a glass of wine was by removing the cork. That era is over.

          


    Coravin Wine Access Technology pours wine while leaving the cork in place, safeguarding the wine from oxidation, thus preserving it until the next glass is poured. Now you can pour, share, and enjoy the same bottle or bottles on multiple occasions, over weeks, months, or even longer -- without wasting a drop.

    Special appearance by Steve Gasman, Brand Manager of Coravin.

    Chef Dewey LoSasso will oversee and reconceptualize the food and beverage program at our Forbes Travel Guide Five Star and AAA Five Diamond resort.

    Chef LoSasso has been a driving force on the South Florida culinary scene having served as the Chef at The Forge since 2008. Chef LoSasso received "excellent" ratings from The Miami Herald and South Florida Sun Sentinel, and was honored as one of Ocean Drive magazine's "Great Chefs." He also served as executive chef at New York's Hudson Hotel, and as the executive and concept chef for China Grill Management's Tuscan Steak in Miami, which was a South Beach favorite during his tenure.

    In his illustrious career, LoSasso has also served as Donatella Versace's personal chef and food event coordinator, creating magnificent meals for the fashion icon's famed parties. He brought fine dining to the sports world as the head chef for the Lipton Tennis Tournament (now Sony Ericsson Open). A New Jersey-native born into an Italian family, LoSasso realized his passion for cooking at age 13, and has been leaving his mark of excellence in kitchens ever since.
