Hawaii Food & Wine Festival: Decadence

Last night, in the idyllic setting of Ko Olina Resort, guests gathered to drink, dine, and dance at Hawaii Food & Wine Festival's Decadence.

About Decadence:
Headlining this night of indulgence is award-winning singer-songwriter KimiĆ© Miner! Escape your daily routine and allow yourself one night of pure indulgence to the strains of “Bamboo” and other soulful songs. As you gaze at the sunset on the sands of the Ko Olina Resort lagoon, twelve world-renowned chefs will be preparing a lavish feast. Winemakers from across the country will transport you to their vineyards through sips of their finest wines and mixologists will mix up your night with haute handcrafted cocktails. Then end the night reveling in the visual decadence of a fireworks extravaganza.
