Wine connoisseurs and foodie lovers mark your calendars: Four Seasons Resort Maui hosts its first annual Wine & Food Classic set for March 1-3.
Spend your weekend tasting hundreds of fine wines.

The debut Four Seasons Resort Wine & Food Classic encompasses top chefs, sommeliers and world-class vintners in partnership with Christian Navarro—deemed “wine therapist to the stars”—of Wally’s Wine & Spirits, and it’s sure to be the culinary event of the season. The event list is seemingly endless, so we’ve rounded up a list of our top picks, but really, how could you go wrong with a weekend of fine wines and savory bites? Kick off your luxury weekend with Masterclasses, which include curated wine tastings led by acclaimed vintners and sommeliers (from $250). There are five different class options, which showcase varying wines, such as the Napa Valley Superstars featuring Mascot, Realm Cellars, Dana Estates, Sinegal Estate and Opus One. Next on our list of must-tries is one of the elite wine dinners (7PM, from $995). With guest celebrity chefs and wine experts at the helm, you, and your stomach, will be blissfully happy under the stars. And did we mention this grants access to an exclusive Serenity Pool After Party where executive pastry chef Bruce Trouyet’s mouth-watering desserts will be at your disposal? And, for the creme de la creme event, we’re lusting over the Oceanfront Gala (6-9PM, from $495) hosted on the resort’s ocean front lawn. Promising an evening of savory wines and gourmet cuisine, over 20 sommeliers will ensure your fresh island dishes—prepared by the guest celebrity chefs and Four Seasons culinary team—are complemented with the perfect wine pair.
