I appreciate that sometimes one does like the creature comforts of home but isn't it fun to seek out local styles and flavours too?

Aussie wine is widely available in the U.S. Myself, I'm partial to California Chardonnay but Aussie Chardonnay is not bad either.

Im always pleasantly surprised how well priced CA wines are in Hawaii. Kendall Jackson is $16+ in Chicago , I routinely find it around $12 in Hawaii. Clois du Bois is another, and Korbel Champagne all around $9-12 on sale

Whereas YT or JC will be $6 here vs$ 8 in Hawaii

Thanks for the feedback. I do like US wine as well especially the white Zinfadel which I will be drinking, but I also love some of the Australian wine being the Lindamens early harvest and was hoping to get that as well in Hawaii. I just like wine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Safeway will certainly have some of the larger Aussie producers, and Costco usually has a few as well.

You will find the Yellowtail wine half the price in Hawaii that you would pay at home, or my own home for that matter. It is often on sale at Long's or Safeway. Make sure you fill out the form at Safeway to get their "card" discounts. It is fast and easy and you will save on more than just your wine!

White Zinfandel is not wine..... more like kool-aid. :)

enjoy your trip.
