Continue past rolling green pastures, serene mountain vistas and beautiful seascapes to Ulupalakua Ranch, where Tedeschi Vineyards is located. This historic ranch was visited by King Kalakaua and Queen Kapi’olani in 1874 and was famed for its hospitality and agricultural prowess. Here, visit the tasting room, formerly the king’s cottage, where you’ll taste a variety of wines. Sample the winery's signature pineapple wine; taste some Ulupalakua wine, a beautiful blend of merlot and Syrah; and savor a lovely sparkling blush wine.
Lastly, visit the Hawaiian paniolo (cowboy) town of Makawao. Enjoy ample time to take a stroll and explore this historic place at your leisure.
