The second of two tasting rooms, showcasing wines made from MauiWine’s Ulupalakua vineyards and exclusive sparkling wines. This 150-year-old stone structure was once the main business office of the historic Captain James Makee, the former whaling captain who in the mid-1800s built a grand plantation estate called Rose Ranch, where MauiWine is today.
Makee spared no expense in constructing this extraordinary lava rock building with English imported tiles and walls 2-feet thick. In its stateliness, this building was very different from other structures on the estate. This building later served as the office for ʻUlupalakua Ranch owner C. Pardee Erdman. Visit this room to learn more about the ʻUlupalakua vineyard and taste our estate wines.
