Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival Announces Three New Experiences to Fall Line Up

Three new experiences raise the bar for wine collectors and craft cocktail connoisseurs at the sixth annual Hawai‘i Food & Wine Festival (HFWF). The festival has added two exclusive wine tastings and an historical twist on cocktails.

Southern Wine and Spirits of Hawai‘i tapped Master Sommelier Roberto Viernes to create two wine tastings to showcase coveted wines that were donated by a local collector. “We received a call out of the blue” explains HFWF Chief Executive Officer Denise Yamaguchi. “When we saw the rare wines from this unexpected donation, we knew we had an opportunity to create once-in-a-lifetime wine experiences.”

Masters of Mersault with Antoine Jobard will feature a tasting of ‘Masters’ library wines from the cellars of Domaines Antoine Jobard and Jean-Marc Roulot and special selections from the illustrious Domaine Coche-Dury prized by wine collectors. This exclusive event is limited to 50 guest and will take place October 29th at Halekulani from 9:30am to 11:00am. Tickets are $200.

The Rarities Tasting: A vertical tasting of 1980’s Bordeaux and a pair of 1990 Hermitage features 30-year old Bordeaux from Angelus, Margaux, and Pavie topped off with a pair of 1990’s esteemed Rhone wines: Jaboulet La Chapelle and Chave Hermitage. Grab a glass and be one of 50 lucky attendees to enjoy this rare treat October 29th at Halekulani from 11:00am to 12:30pm. Tickets are $295.

These coveted wine events could boost HFWF’s reputation in the wine world. Currently, the festival is ranked 7th in a USA Today 10 Best Reader’s Choice Poll for Best Wine Festival. Voting is underway through August 15th at this link: http://www.10best.com/awards/travel/best-wine-festival/hawaii-food-wine-festival-honolulu/

From wine to spirits. Cocktails and controversy star in a new mixology event called Scandal! Dark and Stormy Underbelly of Cocktails.’ Mixologists Jen Ackrill and Aaron Alcala-Mosley will put a scandalous spin on spirits October 15th from 11:00am to 1:00pm at the Westin Kaʻanapali Ocean Resort Villas. Ackrill describes the lunch and cocktail couplet as a “stroll through time and history to discover some of the greatest scandals in cocktail history.” Tickets are $75 and limited to 90 guests.
