maui dining: The 30th Annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival, June 9-12, 2011 - 05/02/11 09:11 AM
The 30th Annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival,  "A Toast to 3-0", celebrates the fine wine and some of the finest food in the islands. 
It's that time of year again!  Hosted by Master Sommelier Fred Dame, Kapalua Resort's legendary Kapalua Wine and Food Festival celebration takes place this June 9-12.
Friday and Sunday nights are the standout events the Festival is known for, but for newcomers, they should know the festival include so much more: tastings, classes, a wine maker's dinner, and even a golf tournament. 
Amongst the tastings, I'm particularly looking forward to "Three Decades of Reserve … (2 comments)

maui dining: New Concierge Service! - 01/28/10 09:47 AM
Working in a resort community like Kapalua, I am often asked what people should do while they are here on island.  I have my personal favorites, like visiting my hometown of Makawao, which is filled with art galleries, and home to a bakery that is renowned in the islands for its cream puffs.  A hike in Hana always hits the spot, and every year I try to squeeze in as many whale watches as possible.
I'd like my website to be more than just a resource for real estate information, and I'm always looking for new features to add to the visitor … (2 comments)

maui dining: A Perfect Day Off in Maui... - 03/09/09 08:37 AM
While Maui is famous for its beaches and golf courses, there are many wonderful things to do beyond the resorts.
Living and working in Kapalua is idyllic, but when I have a day off, one of my favorite day trips is to loop between the towns of Paia and Makawao.  Paia is a sleepy beachside town filled with little cafes and shops.  Paia is close to tourist mecca Mama's Fish House, and one of the windsurfing world's most photographed spots: Hookipa Beach Park.  My favorite stops are The Fish Market (great sandwiches), Milagros (local margaritas), the Flatbread Co (homemade pizzas), and Cafe Des Amis (desert … (0 comments)

maui dining: Honolua Store announces new hours - 03/03/09 09:50 AM

The Honolua Store has been the heart of Kapalua for decades. 
What started as a general store for the plantation, has turned into one of West Maui's favorite breakfast and lunch spots.  People line up each morning for their breakfasts and plate lunches (try the mini-hobo), where the food is promised to Broke Da Mouth.
Since its renovation last year, it now also serves dinner, features a gourmet coffee bar, and offers organic produce from the Kapalua Farms.
The New Hours are:
Honolua Store: 6 am to 8 pmDeli: 6 am to 7:30 pmCoffee Bar: 6 am to 3 pm  

maui dining: Merriman's to Host Winemaker's Dinner on February 5, 2009 - 02/02/09 11:40 AM
On Thursday, February 5th, Ancien Wines Owner and Winemaker Ken Bernards will pair four of his signature wines with Chef Philip Wong's four-course Hawai'i Regional menu to create a memorable dinner.
Since moving to Kapalua in January, Merriman's has become one of my favorite evening spots.  It's just a short walk from our home to this spectacular setting.  While the more formal dinner inside is outstanding, I really enjoy dining al fresco at the point.  Here they've set up tables and chairs to take in the sunset, and the fare is lighter (pupus and cocktails).  After dinner, I gravitae to the chairs around the fire pit, the perfect … (0 comments)
