Great little find

Dan O'Connell runs a great wine shop on the south shore. He's got a solid, representative collection of West coast reds at reasonable prices.

Vacationers who come to Kauai often skip visiting the south shore due to the out-of-the-way turn off the highway to get to Koloa and Poipu Beach beyond. Don't make that mistake, for upon arriving in Koloa, you are immediately taken back to old sugar plantation days and small town commerce. Many small, locally operated shops wait to greet the visitor... More

I wondered how a wine shop could exist in a state where wine was an available commodity in nearly every convenience mart and grocery store (including one just down the street)...and now I know. The Wine Shop carries a nice selection at reasonable prices, and backs it up with friendly, knowledgeable service. We weren't in town long enough to be... More

Located across the street from the Koloa Post Office. We have personally known Dan0 and Ellen for over 20 filled years. The Wine Shop besides caring the best wines on Kauai also has carries Crafted Beers, Specialty Liquor's, Local Spices, locally grown Kauai Beef, Gift Baskets and delivery and if needed a Wedding License from Ellen. They also offer you... More

We are from the San Francisco Bay Area, and, while we aren't wine snobs, we know what we like. This place is amazing, and the prices are great. Lots of amazing wine and beer, and great snacky stuff too. A treasure!

We agree with the other reviews - if there is something specific you want while you're on Kauai, just let Dan and his team know and they will get it for you to enjoy while you're here.

You are 100% correct if you suspect that Dan's Wine shop can NOT compare to Total Wines on the mainland or even COSTCO in Lihu'e for having a huge inventory on hand! That said, if you are going to Kauai like we do several times a year, you can call ahead and he will have your favorite wine and beer,... More

Dan helped me select a case of wine for my family's recent stay on Kauai. We communicated by email and phone - he made great recommendations and delivered the wine to our house on the north shore the day we arrived. Recommended.

I can only add my compliments to those before me. Dano and his wife are lovely. The shop is great, and you should also try the terrific steaks. They are so friendly we even got a lift home after our shop. The wines selection is outstanding, and this really is a gem if you are self catering locally.

...but I was sooo wrong! We were staying on the south side and were just checking out the area when we found the Wine Shop in Koloa. A fantastic shop with a fantastic selection of very nice wines. Here's the best part. I'm pretty sure that the guy that we dealt with was the owner and he was NOT any... More
