Wailea, Maui HI (PRWEB) November 19, 2014
Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea has announced the #FSWineGala Facebook contest to launch its Third Annual Vintage Wine Weekend event in Maui, set for December 5-7, 2014 at the award-winning Resort, Maui’s only Forbes Five-Star hotel property.
The Facebook contest encourages the Resort’s fans to post a picture showing their favorite place to enjoy a glass of wine and telling why in 500 words or less. Two winners will be selected and they can choose from either a pair of tickets to the Vintage Wine Weekend’s Oceanfront Gala featuring Hawaii’s celebrated musician Makana or an exclusive gift basket with Makana’s soon-to-be-released CD and selected items from the participating vintners.
For full contest details, visit Four Seasons Resort Maui’s Facebook Page.
In addition to a full wine program, this Maui weekend event will also include an intimate private concert by violin virtuoso, Elizabeth Pitcairn, owner of the world-famous 1720 Mendelssohn Stradivarius, known as the “Red Violin.”
Open to wine aficionados from around the world as well as enthusiasts from the Islands, the three-day weekend event in Maui, part of the Resort’s Unforgettable Events series, will feature master sommelier Roberto Viernes and elite vintners Dan Kosta of Kosta Browne; Donald Patz of Patz & Hall; Gary Burke of Costa de Oro; Steve Clifton of Brewer-Clifton; Paul Lato of Paul Lato Wines; Justin Willett of Tyler Winery; and Christopher Carpenter of Cardinale Estate, Jackson Family Wine Collection.
Dubbed "The Best Little Wine Event in the Pacific," the weekend event will begin with the exquisite December 5 Oceanfront Gala, featuring a menu developed and prepared by Four Seasons Maui’s Master Executive Chef Roger Stettler and accompanied by a selection of more than 40 wines provided by the guest vintners and other selected wineries chosen by Viernes. The Gala, featuring a performance by Makana, is priced at $165 per person plus tax and gratuity.
The second night, December 6, will be a VIP “Private Cellar” Maui wine tasting event, inspired by the raucous La Paulée parties, the time-honored celebrations in Burgundy where winemakers would compete to bring the best bottle of wine. Guests are asked to bring a cherished bottle of wine to share in the spirit of friendly competition. The guest who brings the bottle that is voted “best” will be awarded a three-night stay in luxurious Maui accommodations and $500 credit at the Resort. The dinner and wine tasting event is priced at $195 per person plus tax and gratuity and a bottle of wine.
The weekend will conclude with Pitcairn’s classical music performance. A special four-course gastronomic menu with a modern approach and classic twist will be paired with limited production, ultra premium wines selected from the Cardinale Estate, a Jackson Family Wine Collection, Napa Valley, under the watchful eye of winemaker Christopher Carpenter.
Price: $295 per person plus tax and gratuity.
