Best wine store and selection in Oahu

Another thread got me wondering. What is the best wine store on Oahu? Looking for a wide selection and dare I say decent prices. The wide selection will suffice.

I don't know what the best wine store is on Oahu. I buy most of my wine at either Safeway or Longs. Great selection at Safeway!!

The best wine, beer & booze store on Oahu, by far...

WIth awesome selection and great prices is Tamura's Fine Wines and Liquors on Waialae Avenue. It is incredble, with aisle after aisle of superior product at the cheapest prices going.

I go there specifically for the dozen or so Belgian Ales they stock.

It is about four miles from Waikiki.

It is also one of the toughest parking lots to get into and out of in the islands. So if you are interested, let me know and I will provide some precise driving instructions.

Plus, they have beyond-belief poke. No kidding. Their Smoked Mahi Poke is addictive.

Ditto Tamura's. Just a neat store to browse. Although if price is a really big issue, Safeway usually has a deal where if you buy 6 bottles you get 10% off and they have good sales on individual wines (you need their card).

We usually just go to Safeway or Costco, both of which have really good selections and prices, but we go to Tamura's more for Scotch than wine. DH is a scotch drinker and Tamura carries some unique ones from Japan (if you can call a liquor from Japan, "scotch')
