Hawaii Food & Wine Festival: Hawaiian Airlines Presents Winederland #HFWF18

Last night over 1200 guests gathered at the Hawaii Convention Center for Hawaii Food & Wine Festival: Hawaiian Airlines Presents Winederland.

About the event:
Enter Winederland—a fantasy world for oenophiles featuring a who’s who of the world’s greatest Cabernets, including Opus One, Silver Oak, and Favia. Swirl, sip, and savor 20 acclaimed wines poured by their actual winemakers and pair them with dishes by 20 renowned chefs on the rooftop of the Hawaii Convention Center. As the night sky twinkles above, you can also enjoy handcrafted cocktails and beers. Experience Winederland your way.

Rain showers did not deter guests from indulging in magnificent eats and refilling their wine glasses all night long.
