Kapalua Wine & Food Festival Tasting

| July 2, 2013 | Parties

MODERN LUXURY HAWAI'I partnered with Kapalua Wine & Food Festival to celebrate 32 years of the longest running food and wine event in the USA. Oenophiles, gourmands, and enthusiasts gathered for interactive seminars featuring Napa Cabs, Syrah, Pinot & Chardonnay wines while enjoying exciting cooking demos with celebrity Chefs Gary Danko and Nancy Oakes. The Sparkling & Cheese Wine Seminar showcased Hawai'i boys Michael Jordan, MS, Chuck Furuya, MS, Roberto Viernes, MS and Patrick Okubo, MS, as they welcomed home former resident Kent Torrey of The Cheese Shop of Carmel for a "sparkling" start to the weekend with vintages of sparkling wines and cheeses from around the globe. A few names in this exquisite selection include an aged Raggeri Prosecco "Giustino Bisol," a Juve Y Camp Gran Reserva Cava, Spain 2007 and a beautiful Magicale, Brachetto Piemonte DOC, Italy NV. Later in the afternoon, the Napa Cabernet Brain Trust Wines Tasting featured Napa's most revered wine makers for a not-to-be-missed sampling. These elite include Philippe Melka of Melka Wines, Mia Klein of Selene Wines and Andy Erickson of Leviathan & favia Wines. Photography by Jason Moore
