All About the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival
The Kapalua Wine & Food Festival is a four-day event held every June at Kapalua Resort. For over 40 years, the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival has been a Maui staple, celebrating the best food and wine that Maui has to offer. Locals and visitors alike enjoy this extravagant celebration.
Over the four days, attendees are treated to a wide variety of events, including wine tasting seminars, champagne and caviar tasting, the grand tasting, and more. For many, the highlight is the grand tasting gala, which features premium wines, Kona brews, Beam Suntory cocktails, and delectable offerings from Kapalua Resort restaurants and friends. Come ready to indulge because this decadent gala is all about savoring the island’s finest tastes.
For winemakers and connoisseurs, the wine seminars are equally delightful. Every year, highly-respected winemakers and sommeliers grace the stage to provide expert insights into local and international wines.
With so many events to choose from, the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival offers something for everyone.

There are several different ticket options available for the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival. A la carte tickets allow you to purchase tickets on a per-event basis, while festival passes include access to all wine tasting seminars, champagne and caviar tasting, the grand tasting gala, and VIP reception, as well as a gift bag. Regardless of which option you choose, we recommend purchasing tickets early, as you can receive a discount.
