Pulling into the parking lot at the company store...
Cute building. We went inside and tried several of the
coffees before picking two out: Lava Flow (excellent!) & Lahaina
Red. From there, we took a self-guided driving tour around the
fields and got to see all the coffee trees; neat stuff!
The next place we wanted to be sure to see was Maui's
Winery. It is located in Upcountry Maui, and the grounds were
beautiful! The diversity of areas on the island is pretty amazing
Here is the tasting room and main office
The tasting list… We had tried the sparkling wine before
and were looking forward to trying some of the other offerings.
We ended up buying a bottle of Maui Splash and a bottle of a red
Syrah that was not on the tasting menu, but ended up being really good!
After our winery excursion, we headed back to the hotel, relaxed
a bit, and got cleaned up for dinner. Both of us were pretty excited for
where we were going… Mama's Fish House!! Is took us awhile to get a
reservation there, but I'm glad we saved it for our last evening; it was
an excellent way to finish our incredible vacation
Turning off from the road...
…and a great view of the ocean
We got there a little early, so we checked in and had
a glass of wine at the bar while we waited for our table
The dining area- loved the almost "vintage Hawaii" ambiance
Here was our first little taste- a delicious asparagus soup
Our Polynisian style ceviche (awesome)
Some small bites of Kahlua pork and poi- also delicious
…and our main course: macadamia nut crusted magi-mahi
with a pineapple buerre blanc- mmm! We both ordered the same
thing, and I am glad, because I wouldn't have wanted to share hehe
Last, but not least- dessert: the Black Pearl (a chocolate
mousse pearl glazed with ganache and set inside a thin cookie crust
shaped like a clamshell. Beautiful presentation, and an excellent dessert.
With full bellies and happy hearts, we headed back to our hotel and
started to pack. It was a bit sad to have to leave this awe-inspiring place,
but we know we will be back, and it was truly an amazing trip :)
