Check out the Hawaii Food and Wine Festival 2019

Hope to see you for this amazing event on Maui.
October 11, 2019

Aloha friends and welcome back to my blog. I hope you’ve been enjoying your summer time in Maui and are gearing up for the fall and winter months. Before the end of the year hits us, why not contact me and take some time to look through some of the Kapalua Resort properties for sale or the residences at Kapalua Bay and let me know when you find a home you can’t live without. There’s plenty out there, so don’t hesitate and act now.

And while I always love sharing with you some of the amazing properties I have listed on my website, there is another reason that makes Maui one of the best places in the world to live and call home. And that reason happens to be our annual Hawaii Food & Wine Festival.  

This event showcases our island’s best of the best in terms of culinary experts. This year, the 2019 Food & Wine Festival on Maui will kick off on Oct. 18th. It’s truly a fantastic event to participate in if you enjoy everything about fine food and wine. During this time, there will be events held on Maui and on other islands that include exclusive dinners and wine pairings, along with golf tournaments and more.

Each year the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival shines a light on more than 150 internationally renowned chefs, culinary masters, and winemakers to celebrate food and culture in Hawaii. A local nonprofit group called the Hawaii Ag and Culinary Alliance puts this event on each year. The mission of the Hawaii Ag and Culinary Alliance is to share Hawaii’s talented culinary experts worldwide through events such as this one. It’s been over a decade since this event first started on Oahu as a three day event in Waikiki and today it’s grown to include 120 chefs, attract 10,000 attendees, and have 20 different events. Proceeds from the festival go towards local organizations that help support our community and that’s just another reason to love the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival.

Well, I hope to see you for this amazing event on Maui. In the meantime, keep checking my website for some great listings. Maui is home to so many excellent homes for sale and you’re sure to come across your dream home in no time. Keep scrolling, looking, and give me a call when you find the perfect home for you. Have a great week!
