For a truly unique wine experience, add a visit to MauiWine on the slopes of Haleakala to your list. Formerly Tedeschi Winery, it’s been producing wine since 1974. Last January, a history room was added extolling the rich culture of Ulupalakua Ranch and of life 1,800 feet above sea level. Today MauiWine is distributed around the globe. Go on your own and tour the grounds or sign up for a tasting in the King’s Cottage and Old Jail.
