Say Cheers!

Wine lovers, it’s time to head over to Maui. The 32nd Kapalua Wine and Food Festival takes places June 6-9, and what a line up there is this year. To make the most of your stay on the Valley Isle, we suggest you make some extra time afterwards to check out some other highlights, too.

Say cheers once again to the Kapalua Wine and Food Festival this June.

1. Kapalua Wine and Food Festival
Toast to a marvelous 32 years of this signature Valley Isle festival, which will bring top sommeliers, wine makers and chefs together once again at the gorgeous The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua from June 6-9. The daily wine seminars certainly promise to thrill. (We won’t miss the Sparking Wine & Cheese session.) But don’t miss the winemaker dinners or the nighttime festivities like the ever-popular Grand Tasting. The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, 1 Ritz-Carlton Way, Kapalua, Maui, kapaluawineandfoodfestival.com
