Say Santé!

| March 7, 2013 | Parties

THE PARTY It was a match made in heaven: top-notch vintages, delicious bites prepared by Maui’s best chefs and the Grand Wailea’s Oceanview Reflections lawn at sunset. THE PLAYERS Chuck and Gail Bergson, Shelly Lindgren, Anne Takabuki, Barry Rivers, Thomas Steinhauer, Robert Dye and Jason Smith, as well as top Hawai‘i chefs, including Bev Gannon, Alan Wong and Brian Etheredge THE SCENE It has to be said—the wines stole the show. Winemakers and sommeliers poured more than 60 different selections that had guests coming back for more and more. To keep the party going right up to the final drop, Maui bands SLAM and Soul Congress provided fun, retro grooves. BEST IN SHOW While the wines dazzled, chefs turned out their own plated marvels. Among the most popular were the rice-paper wraps, prepared by the team from Amasia, Wong’s luxe eatery at the Grand Wailea. Jason Moore
