About Maui Winery (Tedeschi Winery)
Friendly staff, fantastic wines and scenic surrounding unique to Hawaiithats Maui Winery. At an elevation of 1,800 feet on the slopes of Mt. Haleakala, the Tedeschi Vineyards grow the grapes that make Maui Winery famous. Nearby Ululpalakua Ranch and General Store with open-grill meals make this Kula Town destination a complete food and wine experience. Mauis volcanic soils provide a rich environment for grapes to flourish, including varieties like Syrah, Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, and more.
In 1974, Ulupalakua Ranch teamed up with Californias Emil Tedeschi to start growing grapes in Upcountry Maui. While the farmers and winemakers waited for the grapes to mature, they decided to use pineapple to create a dessert wine. Within a short time, this new wine became popular with visitors and locals, and demand for the product grew. In 1984, Mauis Winery produced its first grape wine after years of planting, harvest and production. That wine was released to the public by the name Maui Brut Sparkling.
