On June 10, 2023, we attended the 42nd annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival at the Ritz-Carlton in Kapalua. The Grand Tasting, held that Saturday night, feaured wine, spirits and beers from around the world and pupu style tasting plates from chefs across the island. This year’s line up of tasting hosts and vendor samplings included:
Held in the Ritz-Carlton’s newest pavilion, after two long years, the highly anticipated Kapalua tradition finally popped the cork-off-the-bottle with a bang! With entertainment from Maui’s own Nuff Sedd, continuous pours, exquisite bites of hamachi ceviche, venison, and seafood ramen, it is no wonder the night attracted both locals and visitors as well as travel writers and social media influencers. We were delighted that so many of our members supported this year’s event including Kapalua Golf, Southwest Airlines, Kona Brewing Hawaii, UH Maui College, Maui No Ka Oi Magazine and more.
Congrats to the Ritz-Carlton and the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival for this year’s success! We hope you enjoy the album and have a glass with us at next year’s event!
