Easy drinking, but with interest, and very food-friendly. Beginning from a partnership with growers in California, and on occasion blended with our estate-grown fruit. The beauty is in the art of blending… An often-underrated aspect of the winemaking process, skilled blending is what separates a simple red wine and a wine that is layered in […]

Chenin Blanc

This pale yellow wine, hailing from the oldest vines in our vineyard, is full of complexity. Aromas of lychee, honeysuckle, chamomile, elderflower, coriander, and kafir lime spring out of the glass. The palate will be delighted by lengthy flavors of lemon and Asian pear. This is truly a wine for food pairing and one to […]


A juicy, light-bodied red wine with aromas of pomegranate, cranberry, fresh strawberry, and rose oil. On the palate flavors of strawberry and raspberry combine with star anise, orange peel, and a spray of ocean salinity. Pair this wine with a cheese platter, Kauai shrimp prawn curry, torched salmon, roasted turkey, Caprese, or a Mediterranean goat […]


This wine is an elegant story of fruit and local fauna. Blueberry leads the nose, mingling with black cherry and cranberry. Aromas of local fauna, fresh lavender, and eucalyptus are detected. Flavors of pie crust, cocoa, and dried fruit ensure this is one you will want to have with food. Sip alongside a freshly baked […]


A dry, complex, salmon-hued rosé. Aromas of fresh strawberry, red tulips, lemon verbena, and ocean spray gently linger at the top of the glass. Flavors of tart red berries and ruby red grapefruit dance on your palate. This medium weight rosé is thoughtful, savory, and will make a great companion to bolder food pairings (just […]

Hula o Maui

Pineapple is the “King of Fruits,” and Maui Gold pineapples . . . well, they are the King of all the pineapples! We select only the best to make the Hula o Maui. We look for almost under-ripe fruit to accentuate the fresh pineapple aromatics that are represented in the wine. Quite possibly one of […]

Maui Splash

The development of this extremely popular wine was one of continual transformation. Over the years, Splash has changed not only in its style but also in its use and application. Originally developed as a bar mixer for Makena Resort, it was a very sweet wine. In time, it was introduced into the tasting room as […]

Maui Blanc

Grown on the slopes of Upcountry Maui, the 100% Maui Gold Pineapples used in this wine are handpicked, crushed, and pressed at MauiWine. Each harvest yields between 60,000 and 84,000 pounds of pineapple specifically selected from fields that are best suited for the crisp and clean Maui Blanc style. The fresh pineapple juice is pumped […]


This rustic wine delivers a complex glass again, and followers of MauiWine’s Syrah will not be disappointed. Aromas of eucalyptus, forest floor, thyme, oregano, lavender, and rose fill the nose. On the palate raspberry, cranberry, and dark cherry character swirls with savory flavors of black pepper, sour tamarind, mustard seed, and pine. Let a glass […]

2011 – Grenache and Gewürztraminer

Expanding our acreage even further, the Grenache and Gewürztraminer grape varieties were added to the vineyard in 2011 along with additional acreage of Malbec and Viognier, which had seen success over the last several years in the experimental block.

1995 – The Ulupalakua Thing

What quickly became the premier agriculture event in Hawai’i began in 1995, and was simply called “The Ulupalakua Thing.” Its purpose was to celebrate Maui’s agricultural community and to facilitate partnerships between local farmers and our island’s many talented chefs, which has a large focus today in the farm-to-table movement. The event became enormously popular […]

1994 – 20th Anniversary

The Hula o Maui, a pineapple sparkling wine produced using the Traditional Methode, was released in 1994. Having been just an experiment in the first years of the winery’s inception, it was considered a crazy thought to produce a pineapple sparkling wine, much less to do so using the Traditional Methode Champenoise. As a sort […]

1992 – Maui Splash

The fragrant and tropical Maui Splash was released in 1992. Originally, only a few gallons of Splash were being made each month for a single restaurant. The wine was intentionally left sweeter in style and then was being used like more of a wine cooler. As we produced more, we began serving it in the […]

1996 – King’s Cottage

In line with the estate’s history with the Makee Family and their celebrated Rose Ranch, the tasting room was moved to the historic King’s Cottage in 1996, and the winery grounds expanded to include more production areas. This former guesthouse for Hawaiian royalty offered more space for wine tastings while showcasing the rich heritage of […]

2009 – The Last of the Carnelian

The acreage of Carnelian slowly decreased over the years, and after 34 years the last crop of Maui Carnelian grapes was harvested in 2009. This unique grape hybrid, first developed in conjunction with the UC Davis Department of Viticulture and Enology by Dr. Olmo, had done very well, but after discovering much success with Rhone […]
