Mark your calendars, foodies and wine-lovers: From March 1 to 3, join world-class vintners, master sommeliers and celebrity chefs on Maui three-day luxury epicurean event curated in partnership with "wine therapist to the stars" Christian Navarro of Wally's Wine and Spirits.
The first annual Maui Wine & Food Classic is set to take place this spring at the Four Seasons Resort Maui, an event that promises to deliver a weekend of experiences unlike any other, according to a news release from the hotel.
Get ready for an oceanfront gala and brunch & bubbles, as well as a plethora of other exclusive tasting events. The event is the brainchild of the Four Seasons and one of the most famous and trusted sommeliers in the industry — Navarro, the resident/principal of Wally's Wine & Spirits in Los Angeles.
“This event is exciting and unique, as it brings wine and food lovers together with winery owners, winemakers and winery dignitaries from around the world to spend three days together eating, drinking, and sharing paradise at Four Seasons Resort Maui, which has become one of the world’s leading wine destinations,” Navarro said.
Navarro recently told Forbes that the event originated from a brainstorming session with Four Seasons Wailea marketing director Mark Simon over lunch and rosé. Fast forward months later: The event boasts a curated list of nearly 30 preeminent wine producers. Headliners include Dom Pérignon, Krug, Opus One, Château Cos d’Estournel, Colgin, Harlan Estate, Biondi Santi, Maison Louis Jadot, Billecart-Salmon and many more. Acclaimed spirit producers Louis XIII and Casa Dragones will also join the weekend.
But that’s not all. Celebrity guests will be flocking to the island as well, including Michelin-starred chef Jason McLeod of CH Projects, Jason Fox of Michelin-starred Commonwealth and Top Chef star Jennifer Carroll of Spice Finch. Four Seasons Maui Executive Chef Craig Dryhurst will also be joined by Ryan Kluver of Wally’s Beverly Hills and Wally’s Santa Monica and Peleg Miron of Spago Maui.
