Frequently Asked Questions
Are you a public park?
MauiWine and its grounds are open to the public for the exclusive use of its tasting room, any other activity on the property must be approved and reserved in advance, all commercial operators must have reservations for their guests prior to arrival.
Please be respectful of winery grounds and comply with all property rules: no outside food or beverage, no animals, no smoking, no bicycles.
There are several public parks nearby: Sun Yat Sen, Keokea, Rice.
Is there a shorter route to the winery?
There is only one way to reach the winery – Hwy 37. Although numerous maps may show “shortcuts,” these actually no longer exist. Upcountry is so breathtakingly beautiful – it’s really all part of the MauiWine experience.
From Central Maui, take Hana Highway (Route 36) to Haleakala Highway (Route 37). Heading up the mountain, stay on Hwy 37 all the way to the little community of Keokea. Pass Grandma’s Coffee House on the right, and continue on the narrow road 6 miles to Ulupalakua. MauiWine is just past the ranch headquarters and the Ulupalakua Ranch Store.
Coming from the Hana side of the island, we are located on the “back road” from the town of Hana, which takes approximately two hours. Parts of this road (coming from Hana) are unpaved and narrow but be assured, they are completely passable.
Can we ship wine ourselves?
Federal laws prohibit the mailing of wine by individuals.
Only licensed wholesale/distributors or manufacturers can ship alcohol.
Please check “Find Our Wines” under our Wine section for a list of states where we are licensed to ship directly to consumers.
You can also safely transport your wines home with you as checked luggage. Our King’s Cottage tasting room offers airline-approved insulated packaging available in three, six, and twelve bottle boxes.
Are children allowed? Can they accompany us on the tour?
Absolutely! Anyone under 21 must be accompanied by an adult. Children are welcome to join the tour. Please take into consideration that our tours run about 30 minutes long. They are walking tours, and the guides have no amplification. Consideration for the comfort of other guests and their ability to enjoy the tour without distractions is greatly appreciated.
Are pets allowed on the grounds?
We allow certified service animals only.
Do we need reservations for a tour or wine tasting?
Reservations are strongly encouraged for seating at one of our two tasting rooms. Reservations are required for our Historical Walking Tour.

Do we have to take the tour?
Guests are not required to join the tour, but we certainly encourage it! This complimentary tour is fun and informative. Learn about the flora, fauna, buildings, and grounds. Hear colorful stories from the past. Ask questions and learn more about what makes MauiWine special. We have an extraordinary story we would love to share with you.
Is there a restaurant?
The King's Cottage Tasting Room offers snacks and bites that generally pair with wines. The Ulupalakua Ranch Store & Grill is located across the lane from the Tasting Room. The Grill is open daily from 11 am-3 pm serving authentic ranch-style dishes made with elk, lamb, and beef raised on the ranch. Check out their menu here.
Does MauiWine host wedding ceremonies, receptions, or allow wedding photos?
Currently, we do not have the infrastructure or staffing to offer you what you would deserve to have on your special day.
What is the elevation of the winery?
MauiWine sits at an elevation of approximately 2,000 feet above sea level. However, during your journey to Ulupalakua, the elevation climbs to 3,000 feet in some places. The vineyard is located about a mile away and is between 1750-1900 feet in elevation.
