We bet California Pinot Noir tastes better against the backdrop of the pristine beaches and perfect sunsets of Wailea, Maui.
The Four Seasons Maui thinks so, too. Which is why it’s hosting a three-day event featuring some of the state’s best pinot noirs, coupled with seminars and dinners at the resort’s award-winning restaurants.
“Four Pinots at Four Seasons Resort Maui” will run from June 7 to 9 and feature vintners Gary Burke of Costa de Oro, Greg Brewer and Steve Clifton of Brewer-Clifton, Donald Patz of Patz & Hall and Webster Marquez of Anthill Farm Wineries.
The event includes wine seminars hosted by master sommeliers Roberto Viernes and Chuck Furuya, with open-format tastings of two wines from each winemaker; exclusive wine-pairing dinners at Ferraro’s, DUO and Spago Maui; and a charity golf tournament at the Wailea Emerald Course with lunch at Gannon’s in Wailea.
The three-day event culminates with a gala oceanfront wine dinner created by the resort’s master executive chef Roger Stettler. It will feature 32 specially selected pinot noirs and eight chardonnays.
Ticket prices for the various events begin at $98 per person. Events can be purchased separately or as a package. For more information visit the resort’s website or contact the resort concierge at (808) 874-2201.
