Make a reservation for the King’s Cottage. Enjoy wine by the glass, wine flights, wine cocktails, and pupu. Discover an elevated way to see and taste Maui.
Our little patch of paradise.
Take the scenic drive to ʻUlupalakua Ranch and MauiWine; you'll be glad you did. The paved, pastoral road meanders along the near-top of Haleakala volcano. Massive eucalyptus trees and jacaranda trees bloom with purple blossoms in season. Here in Upcountry, life is slower-paced and everything is breathtakingly beautiful. Sweeping views of the ocean, Lanai, Kaho‘olawe, Molokini crater, and the West Maui Mountains fill your vision to the South and West. To the east, rolling hills of green frame Plantation-style homes, herds of sheep and cattle, and snaking lava rock walls. Arrive at MauiWine and walk the path, past the lawn where King Kalākaua re-embraced the tradition of hula. Approach the King's Cottage Tasting Room and let the host guide you to your table. Meander under the same trees that would have greeted honored guests 150 years ago. Settle in with a glass and unwind as you take in the beautiful view over Maui’s southern coast. Take in the crisp mountain air. Feel the warm sense of hospitality and aloha.
Today, we continue the rich tradition of hospitality and celebration by welcoming visitors from around the world and sharing our craft.
Where it all begins.
We farm a parcel of south-facing Maui countryside, at an elevation of 1,700-1,850 feet, cultivating 6 grape varietals: Syrah, Malbec, Grenache, Chenin Blanc, Viognier, and Gewurztraminer. Our vines thrive in the fertile volcanic soil, nurtured by crisp mountain air and a long growing season. Just as the mountain takes care of us, we too strive to be responsible stewards of this land.
We believe that wines are grown, not made. We remain true to the distinct combination of volcanic soil and climate conditions found in our island vineyard. Meticulous care, innovation, experimentation, and personal passion come together to create great wines with flavors that are unmistakably Maui. The pineapple wines we craft showcase the unparalleled taste of the Maui Gold variety. The wines we make embody the distinct climate and growing conditions that make this place beautiful and challenging.
