Owner description: Ulupalakua is home to Maui's Winery which offers one of the Islands' most enticing products - wines that carry the essence of Hawai'i, the spirit of Maui. Maui's Winery welcomes you to taste the fruit of the island in wines made from their 23 acre vineyard on the slopes of Haleakala, as well as the tropical wines made from the famed Maui Gold pineapples - all grown right here in Upcountry Maui. Visitors to Maui's Winery gather in the tasting room located in the King's Cottage, built in 1874 specifically for the celebrated visits of King Kalakaua, last reigning King of Hawai'i. Guests are invited to follow in the footsteps of Ali'i (royalty) and Paniolo (cowboys) on a guided tour of the historical grounds. A journey into Ulupalakua's illustrious past, a tour of the Makee estate, and a glimpse at the creation of Maui wines are all a part of the experience. Welcome to Ulupalakua... where the storied history blends with modern day agriculture, creating the perfect setting for the islands only winery and vineyard. Time Well Spent

“Educational Tour and Tasty Wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We have been to Maui 4 or 5 times and are always looking for things to do so this time we heard about the winery on the island and decided to give it a try. We had plenty of time on our hands so we didn't mind the 45 minute drive from Kahului. It is a slow, windy, drive to be prepared for that but if you like wine, scenery, and learning new things it's worth it. The tour guide was patient, informed, and loved her job. You get to sample up to three different types of wine either before or after the tour. We can now check this adventure off our list but we are glad we did it once!

“Pineapple Wine, MMMmmm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

I love the pineapple wine! It was so good. This was a neat experience. We sampled the wines and then stuck around for the wine tour. It was very cool hearing about the history of the land and the process of making wine out of pineapples.

“don't make special trip, but worth dropping in if you are in the area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

It's a long way from anything else and not worth a special trip. But it's worth dropping in if you are driving by. It's a free wine tasting and a cute shop with lots of gifts to choose from. My favorite aspect was the sheep and goats out back - for city people like us they were very entertaining to watch.

One tip - if you'll be walking around outside put on bug spray - I had several mosquito-like bites.

“Wine was good. People were a bit chilly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

The adventure of driving the windy road to Maui's only winery was mostly worth it. The tasting is free and wine surprisingly good, but the servers were not as friendly as the typical Maui business owner. The other bummer is that although the property has a nice area with a beautiful view to picnic, visitors can't drink the wine they bought on the property.

“Lovely drive up country”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We had visited Tedeschi Vineyard before, and this time went back specifically to pick up some Maui Splash wine.

The drive up country is beautiful. And the scenery looking down the coast is stunning.

Once you arrive at the vineyard, you can try out the wine tasting. We had done that last time and really enjoyed it. You can also visit the store/deli across the road. Or just buy some tasty wine and enjoy the drive up there.
