The Journey

The Journey

Soak in the breathtaking countryside

There comes a moment on a journey when something sweet, something irresistible and charming as wine raised to the lips, wells up in the traveller’s being.

It’s been said that life is a journey, not just a destination. So too do we believe that the MauiWine experience begins long before you ever reach our tasting rooms. Enjoy the scenic drive through the rolling countryside and soak in the crisp mountain air as the altitude gently climbs. The vineyard is nestled in the southern-facing slopes of Haleakala between 1,700 and 1,850 feet in elevation, and the winery is just another mile down the road. Between scenic glimpses that stretch all the way to the ocean, the journey is accented by massive eucalyptus trees and jacaranda trees that bloom with stunning purple blossoms in season. Here in Upcountry, life is slower-paced and everything is breathtakingly beautiful—it’s a side of Maui you have never even imagined.

Arriving


Step into a heritage of hospitality

King’s Cottage

As you make your way deeper into the lush Maui countryside, you can’t miss the entrance to the winery, framed by blossoming flowerbeds and a magnificent variety of trees planted more than 150 years ago on the original Rose Ranch estate. This historic building is what we call the King’s Cottage, named after its heritage as a mountain retreat where King Kalākaua—the last reigning king of Hawai’i—and Queen Kapi’olani would come to relax and be entertained. Today, we invite you to experience this “princely hospitality” and enjoy the panoramic vistas over Maui’s southern coast and neighboring islands. At MauiWine, we take pride in our deep-rooted hospitality, and this is part of where the tradition began over a 150 years ago. Welcome to our home.

Here at MauiWine, we invite you to delight each of your senses as you enjoy a tasting through an intriguingly diverse set of wines. Many of our tastings take place in the King’s Cottage at our 18-foot bar made from a single mango tree, and we take great pride in sharing our wines, all handcrafted to reveal a bit of Maui’s agriculture with you. Just as the island itself is home to so many different landscapes, wildlife, and cultures, each wine reflects this broad variety, from our flavorful pineapple wines to Traditional Methode sparkling wines and exclusive small production estate wines from our 23-acre vineyard.

Before we get too caught up in the history of the ranch, we like to step back and reflect upon the land to which we owe our livelihood. Contact us to learn how to arrange a special visit to our vineyard and complete your MauiWine experience. Here on the southern-facing slopes of Haleakala, you can run your fingers through the rich volcanic soils that sustain our vines and give each of our varietals their distinctiveness. Just as the mountain takes care of us, we too strive to be responsible stewards of the land using sustainable farming practices. At an elevation of 1,800 feet above sea level, our 23-acre vineyard is home to Syrah, Malbec, Grenache, Viognier, Chenin Blanc, and Gewürztraminer grapes. The fruits of these vines thrive in this climate, nurtured in the crisp mountain air and long growing season. This beautiful hillside is where each wine picks up the essence of the mountain—layers of flavor and complexities designed by Haleakala itself.

Winemaking is all about guiding the fruit to completely express itself, and every bit of its personality, every intricacy is derived from how and where it is cultivated. After all, we believe that wines are grown, not made. Our island growing conditions are certainly one-of-a-kind, and as such, we strive to remain true to the distinctiveness that only our vineyard provides. Maui also grows the best pineapples in the world, allowing us to take these famed and iconic fruits and use them to craft our uniquely flavorful pineapple wines. At MauiWine, meticulous care, innovation, experimentation, and personal passion come together to create great wines with flavors that are unmistakably Maui.
