    Who knew pineapple wine was a thing? I didn't, but the winery is worth the trip (and tasting) anyway. The drive is beautiful and the view of the island is unprecedented. Note that it will likely be cl...  more »

    We took the advice of another Trip Advisor reviewer and signed up for the Old Jail tasting. The wine room was packed (and that tour was free) but we took advantage of the Old Jail tour (offered only t...  more »

    This can be a great stop if you are traveling Hana Highway from the opposite end or all the way around, though not the early birds. They open at 10. The entire experience is way above the average expectations for a wine establishment. Very nice place with free parking, well-manicured grounds, great views, free tastings and super friendly staff. We tasted 4 wines and didn’t find any we’d like to take back with us. One would expect the south-west slopes of Haleakala with lots of sunshine and controlled irrigation to be an ideal environment for growing great wine, but obviously, they are other variables.

    Lovely free tasting where you get to pick the wines from their tasting list. I had previously tried their semi-sec pineapple wine and didn't like it much but I was able to try their sweeter pineapple wine and found it much more to my taste. The grounds were nice and relaxing as well. Drive wasn't too bad as long as you are hanging out near Paia as well. Would be an excellent side-trip on the way back from a morning/early afternoon at the Haleakala summit.

    Made a special trip out to the winery with a friend today. With great anticipation we went in to test the wine....stood at counter...no one paid me any attention. Looked around the room a bit. Tried standing at another part of the counter...no one paid me any attention. Finally got the eye of the woman behind the counter and after I said "I'd like to taste some wine" she gave me the listing. My friend joined me. Again...we stood and stood and stood watching as others were served and we were ignored. We eventually left with only a bitter taste in our mouths.

    We have visited this winery twice. Great wines and great customer service! We had a case shipped home this time for a very reasonable price.

    We got here RIGHT as they were closing for the day, and after a pot of hiking, we really needed a drink!! The lady who helped us was incredibly kind and gracious. The tasting is free, and the wines are really fantastic. We enjoyed the unique pineapple infused wines and even brought a few home! The tasting room is gorgeous and they have a lot of great little gifts (some are locally sourced) in their giftshop.
