KAPALUA - Prepare for a magical weekend at the 33rd Kapalua Wine & Food Festival presented by Visa Signature, which will take place June 12-15, 2014. This annual "migration" of oenophiles, gourmands and enthusiasts of the good life reunite at Kapalua Resort to celebrate, learn and experience the finest culinary trends and viniculture.
Highlights of the weekend include interactive wine tasting seminars from the celebrated wine regions of Russian River Valley, Santa Lucia Highlands and the Pacific Northwest. International wines will also be well-represented, and savored, from Italy and New Zealand. Celebrity Chefs Dean Fearing and Andrew Sutton are sure to wow guests with culinary samplings, with many more unique and memorable tastings and experiences throughout the rest of the weekend.
Host and Master Sommelier Michael Jordan commented, "This festival has a great vibe and is becoming the favorite for winemakers to attend and showcase their premium vintages and share their stories. Our goal every year is to surpass the fun and festivities from the year prior, and I have no doubt we will top the stellar success of 2013."
Major sponsors for the 2014 event include Visa Signature, Kapalua Resort, The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, The Montage Kapalua Bay, Maui Visitors Bureau, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser/HI Luxury Magazine and Alaska Airlines.
