17 Maui Restaurants Win Wine Spectator Awards

One of Maui's best qualities is its versatility. You can live humbly, or you can engage in a luxury lifestyle if you have the means. Yes, this applies to Maui real estate, of course, but it also applies to how you spend your time. Anyone can enjoy beach days, hiking, and visiting waterfalls, while others can indulge in ocean cruises, spa days, and fine dining regularly. Then there's the wine, which also runs the full spectrum in terms of quality and pricing.

Recently, Wine Spectator awarded 35 Hawaii restaurants for their wine lists, and while Oahu establishments claimed 15 awards, Maui boasted no less than 17. This is the island that people choose when they want to enjoy themselves, whether they're vacationers, residents, or prospective Maui home buyers. For many, a good dinner just isn't complete without a nice glass of wine to pair it with.

The awards given to Maui restaurants fell into two categories Award of Excellence and Best of Award of Excellence. If you're curious, here are the winners from both categories.

Best of Award of Excellence Winners

  • Longhi's Wailea since 2007
  • Nick's Fish Market since 2013
  • Lahaina Grill since 2016
  • Longhi's Lahaina since 2016
  • Merriman's Kapalua since 2016

Award of Excellence Winners

  • Hali'imaile General Store since 2011
  • Sarento's On The Beach since 2017
  • Morimoto Maui since 2014
  • Ko since 2017
  • Gannon's, A Pacific View Restaurant since 2016
  • Pacific'O since 1996
  • Fleetwood's on Front St. since 2014
  • Gerard's since 1994
  • Honu Seafood & Pizza since 2012
  • Mala Ocean Tavern since 2010
  • Son'z Steakhouse since 2017
  • Pulehu, An Italian Grill since 2013

The winners for the Award of Excellence were chosen based on wine lists that include a well chosen collection from quality producers. The Best of Award of Excellence went only to those restaurants with extensive selections featuring wines with significant vintage depth and excellent breadth across multiple regions.

The winners should be proud of their awards, considering that throughout all 50 U.S. states and 75 countries, there were a total of just 3,592 winners. Many of them are located within minutes of some of the finest South Maui real estate listings on the market, if you're looking to buy. After all, what could be more enjoyable than sipping a glass of wine from a wonderful restaurant located just minutes away from your South Maui home as you watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean?
