In a stainless steel mixing bowl, combine pineapple slices, sugar, wine, vanilla bean and mint leaves. Place into baking pan and cover with foil. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Fruit should be slightly caramelized to the bottom of the baking pan and there should be fragrant syrup through out.
Whip cream to soft peaks. Add 1/4 cup sugar and spices. Continue whipping to stiff peak.
Serve slice of pineapple with syrup and dollop of cream. Sprinkle with toasted coconut.
