Vin­tage Ven­dor

Waikiki Magazine - - ISHOP - By Sarah Pacheco

Make a toast to the New Year with a sophist­cated li­ba­tion from Waikiki Wine Closet, Waikiki’s only re­tail wine shop. This fam­ily-owned and -op­er­ated busi­ness is run by fa­ther-son duo Bud and Everett Mil­stead, who both have owned suc­cess­ful restau­rants and re­tail es­tab­lish­ments both in Cal­i­for­nia and Hawai‘i. Stay­ing true to the motto “life is too short to drink bad wine,” the Mil­steads opened Waikiki Wine Closet, and for the past year have been of­fer­ing pa­trons a long list of ex­tra­or­di­nary vin­tages from War­wick, Ken­neth Volk Vine­yards, Opolo Vine­yards and Buc­cella, among oth­ers. Un­sure of which la­bel to take with you? Stop in for Waikiki Wine Closet’s tast­ings each Fri­day and Satur­day from 6 to 9 p.m.; or sched­ule a pri­vate wine and beer tast­ing. They’ll ar­range for par­ties both small and large, a per­fect op­tion for any spe­cial oc­ca­sion (think: bri­dal shower, birth­day or an­niver­sary bash). Waikiki Wine Closet is open be­tween 2 and 10 p.m. daily. Waikiki Wine Closet 460 Ena Road, Ste. 101 [B:3 Waikiki Map] (808) 942-2280 www.waikiki­
