Wine of the Month

Mastro Redimore 

The name Redimore, or "Kind of Blackberries," recalls the youthful aromas of its single varietal composition. 100% Aglianico grapes harvested in October go into the cats which produce Redimore. The grapes are aged in French oak barriques for 12 months. Deep ruby red color. Complex and intense, with hints of red fruits, especially strawberries and raspberries, and spices such as vanilla, tobacco, cocoa and coffee. Elegant, well-structured, with a long persistence and a remarkable softness.

The dining experience at The Florida Yacht Club is unforgettable. The warm, fun and friendly environment is present all of the time. Our Chef prepares a wide variety of world class cuisine ranging from hand cut steaks and local produce to the best seafood in the City. Along with seasonal menus in the dining room, our “Chef’s Market” menu is created nightly for our members’ enjoyment.

Our Chef receives daily deliveries of whole fish, hand selecting the best available, and then preparing our nightly features with a sushi grade product. There are many dining traditions at The Florida Yacht Club, for example, fried chicken on Wednesdays and Pasta Bar on Thursdays. These have been some of our specials for over half a century. At yacht Club, tradition is held in the highest regard.
