Kula, Hawaii – Maui Wine

Posted by

My husband and I enjoy visiting wineries and seeing the vineyards and the history of each. The history of Maui Wine in Kula was very intriguing.  We basically skipped the topic of wine while at Maui Wine and spent most of our time in the garden areas fascinated by the huge trees that were planted 150 years ago.

I found it difficult to walk away from the large variety of different flowers and the old buildings located on the mountainside. I enjoy imagining all the relationships that grew from conversations in those aged buildings. Along with the hard work and heritage that built them and the memories developed for the ones involved.

The history of the land Maui Wine sits on goes back to 1841 and includes King Kamehameha III leasing a sugar mill on the Ranch. Soon to be known as Rose Ranch and later becoming a cattle ranch. History continues on to tell of King Kalakaua and the Queen visiting the Ranch and finding exquisite hospitality during their time. Much weather related events and purchasing history come into existence between then and 1974 when Maui Wine developed and forward to when President Regan had Maui wine served at his inauguration ceremony in 1981.

The most interesting flower I discovered while walking the grounds was Jade. I have never seen this flower before and found it most beautiful.

I hope you enjoy the rich colorful growth through pictures half as much as I enjoyed walking the grounds.
