Japengo at Hyatt Regency Maui will be partnering with Maui’s only winery-MauiWine-for its Maui Tastemakers Series in September.  Each Friday in September, guests can experience a special pre-fixe menu featuring three flavorful courses paired with MauiWine estate vintages, pineapple and blended wines.

Exclusively on this Friday, September 1, guests are invited to a special meet and greet with MauiWine’s winemaker, Mark Beaman, and learn more about Maui’s only winery located on the southern slopes of the Haleakala volcano.

Japengo and MauiWine celebrate their shared passion for using fresh and locally grown products. Nestled on the southern slopes of Haleakala volcano, Maui’s only winery has grown distinctly flavored wines since 1974.
