La Cava

Dine, Miami

A hidden gem tucked inside Faena Miami Beach, La Cava is an immersive wine room hosting special candlelit events paired with a carefully curated collection of 3,000 wine bottles showcasing varietals from every corner of the globe.


“The showpiece is our 20-seat dining table from designer Frank Pollaro’s collection created in collaboration with actor Brad Pitt,” said Marko Karovic, Faena’s head sommelier.

Guests at the table have access to supreme vintages—some dating back to the 1940s. “We carry Château Latour 1982, considered by all wine critics to be one of the best ever,” said Karovic. Other notables include Château Haut Brion 1989 and Screaming Eagle 2007.

But La Cava offers more than a taste of rare wines. Faena is partnering with Louis XIII, a cognac produced by Rémy Martin, to give spirits enthusiasts a chance to sample one of the most coveted cognacs in the world.

Faena offers nine lockers to rent with different quantities of the French brandy, ranging from a 750ml to magnum bottles. Karovic himself greets guests and provides white-glove pours showcasing specialty glassware engraved with the client’s initials. “Guests are usually celebrating an important milestone or toasting an important business deal,” he explained.

The wine cellar is also stocked with Faena’s private label wines produced in Mendoza, Argentina, one of the top wine capitals of the world. Collaborating with acclaimed winemaker Marcelo Pelleriti, Faena produces five labels, including a Malbec Rosé, Torrontés, Chardonnay, Classic Malbec, and Gran Malbec—a special selection aged for 18 months in French oak.

The wines are available throughout the Faena District, including its restaurants and bars as well as Faena Theater and in-room minibars.

“We’re also about to launch a Sauvignon XXXVis, a single-vineyard vintage from Alta Vista, which will be one of Faena’s finest.”
