Endless Brunch Cocktails + Wine at DUNE Fort Lauderdale

Endless Red Sangrias

Nicely balanced between sweet and dry; Seasonal Berries and Citrus soaked in Wheatley Vodka, Four Graces Pinot Noir and Cointreau.

Endless  brunch option for $24; Endless White Sangrias and Bloody Marys also available, but not shown.

Bottomless Pinot Noirs

Choose from the three single-vineyard 2018 Pinot Noirs – Oeil de Perdrix Pinot Noir Blanc (rosé), Las Alturas and Clark & Telephone, under Joe Wagner ́s Belle Glos label; (Coastal California).  Bottomless wine brunch option for $28.

Oeil de Perdrix Pinot Noir Blanc

Pale pink, dry rosé wine with aromas of strawberries, cherries and citrus to the nose.  Translates on the palate as clean, crisp and with a touch of spice, and perfectly balanced between sweet and tart. A nice soft and long-lasting finish.

Clark & Telephone Pinot Noir

Bright ruby red color with dark fruits to the nose.  On the palate, juicy with hints of cherry and spice; and nicely balanced tannins and a smooth, long finish.

Las Alturas Pinot Noir

Medium-bodied with a deep ruby red color, and jammy aromas of blackberries and plums.  On the palate; dark berry fruits along with dark chocolate, vanilla and hints of oak.  Rich tannins are followed by a smooth and fruity finish.

The new brunch section, A Las Brasas, offers a mix of grilled favorites delivered to your table on miniature konra grills.  You can feast on The Boardwalk Grill  – Morsels of lobster, King crab, yellowfin tuna, skirt steak, chistorra (chorizo style sausage), and lamb chops; served with paired sauces on the side.

We opted for The Beach Grill featuring fresh scallops, wild shrimp, petite filet, and lamb chops; accompanied by delicious, individual sauces -corn crema, drawn butter, chimichurri, and salbitxada (a Catalan-style tomato sauce made with peppers and garlic).  The miniature konra grill kept our seafood and meats hot, while we dipped and sipped our Sunday afternoon blissfully away.

Do not miss their scrumptious brunch dessert, French Toast Bread Pudding served with maple syrup and dollops of whipped cream.
