We spent a Saturday afternoon at the winery and took the tour. The tour was with the owner who is a charming gentleman who clearly loves his winery and loves sharing the joys of wine. He's definitely not a wine snob and it's refreshing to see that he doesn't take it all too seriously.
We were there for the Pacific Evening. It was an event that you could make reservations for, it had a 5 course meal with a wine pairing with each course - and entertainment.
The dinner was ok. The first course of Poke was excellent, but a bit too spicy. The soup was nice. The third course of garlic shrimp with lo mein was terrible - the shrimp were rubbery, tough and over cooked, and the lo mein tasted like it was just drenched in soy sauce - WAY too salty. The 4th course was tuna - it was ok, a little bland. The dessert was ok as well.
The entertainment was nice. They had someone from Hawaii performing hula dances and a gentleman who works full time locally and is clearly an enthusiast for Hawaiian culture MC-ing and performing in the show.
The star of the evening - as it should be - was the wine. Raven's Glenn makes nice wine and it's very enjoyable. I'm not a fan of dessert wine, so we only took a sip of the last one, but the Riesling is great - and I'm not usually a fan of riesling. The October White was so good we went in and bought a bottle after dinner.
It was a fun evening with friends, good wine, and a lot of laughs.
