What we're about

We have renamed our meetup to reflect a more casual approach to wine & wine tasting & food pairing by adding additional & unique wine activities. Events include Wine Tours. Wine & Art Tours & the unique concept of Wine & Nature Adventure Outings. (Wine/Bike trips, Wine Kayak Outings, Foodie/Wine & Nature Outings.)

Occasionally we will invite vintners to offer their insights about their own experience in the wine industry while pouring their wines. And we invite wine drinkers to share in these discussions, treks, and tastings. Come join in the exploration.

Santé,

TOM Bold aka: Koma Nahoa (Hawaiian Name)

Please note: Tom Merle is still our Wine Guru.
