Four Seasons Resort Maui

Age Specific / Adult Children

Beach-loving oenophiles: A new epicurean adventure gives you a peek into Hawaii’s heritage of fishing, hunting and gathering Maui’s seafood, game and produce. Fire & Wine is a unique experience at Four Seasons Maui led by an open-fire chef and advanced sommelier that will give you a whole new appreciation for the island’s culinary culture.

Fire & Wine is the newest of the resort’s Unforgettable Experiences, a customizable series of high-end experiences that connect guests to the people and places on Maui in a most immersive way.

 

“This newest Unforgettable Experience gives guests a unique glimpse into a part of Hawaii’s history that is so important but often un-experienced,” said director of guest experience Shermaine Rodrigues. “Haiku House itself is a treasure, but add Yeshua’s open fire cooking and the world’s best wines, and the experience is nothing short of spectacular.”

Here are six things you’ll encounter during Fire & Wine:

 

  • You’ll depart via an aerial tour from Blue Hawaiian Helicopters. Located just a few minutes from the resort, the outlet lets you explore waterfalls, sea cliffs and even the Haleakala Crater on the way to the event.

 

  • The ride ends on the manicured grounds of Haiku House, a historical estate located on the North Shore at the edge of the jungle. Once safely on terra firma you’ll be able to explore the area on electric bikes or on a stroll through the citrus grove or garden.

  • Yeshua Goodman, owner and head chef, Kiawe Outdoor, and the island’s most accomplished master sommelier will greet you at the fire, where the personalized menu you created in advance will already be cooking on an open fire using ingredients procured from the island like deep-sea fish, axis deer and unique produce.

  • An interactive blind wine tasting led by Goodman will decide the liquid pairings for the evening’s menu.

 

  • While the meal is still being prepared you’ll be led on an insider’s tour of Haiku House by a representative of the Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum, where you’ll learn about the property’s past connection to the sugar industry. A portion of the profits from the tour benefit this nonprofit’s efforts to preserve the history of Maui’s sugar industry.

 

  • It all culminates in a multicourse meal cooked over kiawe (mesquite) wood and paired with the selected wines, all served under a canopy of monkeypod trees by Goodman himself, finishing with a dessert from Four Seasons Maui executive pastry chef Riccardo Menicucci.

Luxury River Cruising Through the Amazon with Jungle Experiences

Mention touring the Amazon and people tend to think of hard-core adventurers armed with machetes and rifles fighting off anacondas, piranhas and mosquitoes the size of small dogs. While it's true the Amazon is still one of the most remote destinations in the world, experiencing one of the last bastions of pure wilderness is more realistic than you think.
