Maui's Winery

Maui's Winery The 20,000 - acre tract that is 'Ulupalakua Ranch has a history as full bodied as the wine now produced by Tedeschi Vineyards: Tiny, rural communities, rolling green pastureland, great distinguished trees, majestic mountain vistas, sublime seascapes below. You will see it all on the road to Tedeschi Vineyards. And when you arrive, you will feel the history of the place. The name of the area - 'Ulupalakua - is most often translated as "breadfruit ripened on the back." Legend has it that an ancient Hawaiian chief would send his messengers to Hana for breadfruit. By the time they resumed, on foot of course, their precious cargo would have ripened. But much of Hawaiian history is sketchy, at best. The reason is a practical one. Until the missionaries arrived, Hawaiian was exclusively a spoken language and therefore, the Hawaiian historical traditional is an oral one. According to one of Maui's most respected cultural authorities, Hokulani Holt - Padilla, the commonly accepted meaning of 'Ulupalakua probably is correct "because a nearby ahupua'a or land division is called Ka'ono'ula or 'the desire for breadfruit." 1845 - King Kamehameha III leases Honua'ula - an approximately 2000 acre portion of the great district we know as 'Ulupalakua - to L. L. Torbert for the purpose of growing and processing sugar cane.

From Central Maui, take Hana Highway (Route 36) to Haleakala Highway (Route 37). Heading up the mountain, stay on 37 all the way to the little community of Keokea. Pass Henry Fong Store on the right, and continue on the narrow road 5.1 miles to Ulupalakua. The winery is just past ranch headquarters and the Ulupalakua Ranch Store.
