Wine. It’s what’s for dinner at Koele

The Four Seasons Lodge at Koele is doing a wine dinner on June 23.

Sadly, unlike April’s beer dinner at Koele, I’m not off to Lanai for the four-course meal this time. But I promised readers back then that I would let you all know the next time the Lodge did one of its swanky—yet very casual and fun—themed dinners.

Justin Vineyards and Winery of Paso Robles, Calif., is hosting this one. Owners Deborah and Justin Baldwin will be on hand to chat up the evening’s wine selections. Brand new Lodge at Koele executive sous chef Fabrice Huet designed the food.

The selections got me ravenous: Risotto and Kona lobster, grilled Kobe beef strip loin with blue cheese-infused Yukon potatoes, and a Valrhona-Caraibe chocolate parfait with honey-roasted pears—all paired with Justin wines.

Dinner will be served in the Lodge’s Music Room. Price per person is $125. The dinner is on a Monday. But chances are if you’re even considering a stay at the Four Seasons Lodge at Koele, flying in for a wine dinner on a weeknight isn’t a problem for you. Call (808) 565-2335 for reservations and the full menu.

There are far worse ways to spend a Monday.
