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. At times along the drive you may feel as though you could as easily be in parts of Ireland or Italy, but a glance at the ocean and possible whale sighting will bring you back to Maui. Arrive at MauiWine and walk the path, past the lawn where King Kalākaua re embraced the tradition of hula. Let the host guide you and assist in securing a table for you to taste at. Enter the historic King’s Cottage Tasting Room or follow the path to the Estate Tasting Room. 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 this rich tradition of hospitality and celebration by welcoming visitors from around the world and sharing our craft.

Where it all begins.
Established along the southern-facing slopes of the Haleakala volcano, is our 23-acre vineyard. This fertile soil is home to Syrah, Malbec, Grenache, Viognier, Chenin Blanc, and Gewürztraminer grapes. Our vines thrive at this elevation of 1,800 feet above sea level, nurtured in the crisp mountain air and long growing season. Just as the mountain takes care of us, we too strive to be responsible stewards of the land using sustainable farming practices.

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 and the unparalleled taste of the juicy, Maui Gold pineapple. Meticulous care, innovation, experimentation, and personal passion come together to create great wines with flavors that are unmistakably Maui.
