The longest-running event of its kind across the United States, the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival will enter its 36th year from June 8-11. This celebration of epicurean excellence combines the finest in food and wine while embracing all things Hawaiian—notably the culinary bounty on Maui.
Over the years, the festival program has grown to incorporate cooking demonstrations, wine-andfood pairings, a golf tournament and two major evening galas—the celebrated Grand Tasting with theme-inspired cuisine and wines from around the world and the Seafood Festival, featuring culinary delights from Hawai‘i’s most prominent names in the local dining scene, as well as visiting chefs.
“The objective each year is to continue to position the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival as the most distinguished culinary Festival in the state of Hawai‘i, and as one of the most respected in the nation,” say event organizers. “Consumers are able to sample the best wines and interact with prominent industry leaders in one of the most beautiful resort settings in the world.” kapaluawineandfoodfestival.com
