Maui Wine Ulupalakua Vineyard

Visit Maui's first commercial winery developed on volcanic land among historic buildings. 

The grounds of Ulupalakua Vineyards, home of Maui Wine

In 1974, Emil Tedeschi established Maui’s first commercial winery on a few acres at 'Ulupalakua Ranch on the slopes of Haleakala which now grows over six different varietals on 23 acres. The King Kalakaua Guest Cottage was built in 1874 for David Kalakaua, Hawaii's last reigning king, and his queen Kapi'olani, who were frequent visitors to the ranch. Visitors can sample wines (some made from the juice of pineapples) at an eighteen-foot-long bar made from a single mango tree, purchase Hawaii-made products and specialty foods, and examine remnants of 'Ulupalakua's past, which features both Hawaiian royalty and paniolo (cowboys).

They offer three guided tours: the tasting room with pineapple and sparkling wines and estate wines and tours of the historic estate, wine cellar and production area; the old jail tasting/king/s visit take palce in the room that once served as captain James Makee’s private office and was then used as a jail in the late 1800’s, tastings include the single-varietal Ulupalakua Vineyards estate wines, including unreleased wines, back vintages, special bottlings and wines exclusive to these tastings alone. Private tours are also available with advance reservations.
