Hungry? Thirsty? On Maui this week?
The Kapalua Wine & Food Festival begins this Thursday, June 24, at west Maui’s luxe Ritz-Carlton Kapalua Resort.
One of Hawaii's most venerable food events, the fest is pretty much foodie nirvana—four days of grand dinners, wine and food tastings and pairings a wine tour, and culinary demonstrations hosted by renowned chefs and industry pros and master sommeliers. The theme of this year's 29th annual edition of the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival is "Summer Soiree"—with culinary events highlighting Hawaii Regional Cuisine and Hawaii fusion, food movements with deep roots in the Islands.
We wrote about a handful of the wine and dining events at this year's Kapalua Wine & Food Festival we were looking forward to most in a previous HawaiiMagazine.com article. (Click here to read it).
Tickets for individual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival events are still available, and run from $50 to $75 per person for wine tours and wine tastings to $135 per person for the fest’s signature dinners. A four-day pass, which includes entry to all fest events and dinners, is $699 per person.
Visit the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival website for more information, ticket prices and purchase, and for information on Ritz-Carlton Kapalua accommodation packages. A complete schedule of KW&FF events is here.
HAWAII Magazine will be on Maui, from the fest's Grand Tasting dinner on Friday evening, Jan. 25, through its Seafood Festival on Sunday evening, Jan. 27. We're both excited … and already famished.
Can't be at the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival this weekend, but considering a trip to Maui for 2011's 30th annual edition? Follow our food and wine grazing adventures at this year's KW&FF weekend via my HAWAII Magazine Twitter travel account: @HAWAIIMagDerek.
Don't want to follow all of our gastronomic and oenophilist activities that closely? A select few of my @HAWAIIMagDerek tweets and photos should also find their way on to HAWAII Magazine's official Twitter feed: @HAWAIIMagazine, and our HAWAII Magazine Facebook site during the weekend, as well.
