I wish I were in Hawaii! We are in our sixth month of winter here in Wisconsin. Check out the "BUY" section in Snooth to purchase wines in Hawaii. I also know that wine.com sells wines to Hawaii for an additional shipping fee. Good luck and enjoy the weather!

Aloha!

Ex-Maui boy here. I feel your pain

Most of the big retailer in California ship to Hawaii. 

have you visited Tamura's, The Wine Shop on King st, or Wine the Experience?

Best bets for wine in Oahu.

What have you been drinking lately?

Hello KaiHawaii, and welcome to the Forum.  I just recalled that we had a poster named Nanakulakane and he had a recommended store in Honolulu:

There is a wine shop in the Victoria Ward Center, across from the big multiplex movie place that has a very good selection and will order any wine you want.

Here is a link if you want to read the entire thread.

Thank you all for warm welcome! I will try that old shop at ward warehouse. I know where. Ordering from online shop scare me due to long way  air shipping to Hawaii. I wonder if wine shop get  theirs in special temperature controlled shipment. But if you order wine from online , could you send me names?

I recently joined some private wine society that  opened last December in Ala Moana.  It's called Vintage Cave. Try their food and wine selection when you are in town. Nice to get together with likeminded. More enjoyable. As for wine, I am just someone who enjoy fine dining and good wine without much knowledge.  Hope to learn more and enjoy more. I am also interested in traveling for food and wine / culture .... Mahalo!

Welcome Kaihawaii!  There are a lot of good wine companies for ordering online (though I guess it depends on the state), I've had good experiences with Wine.com and WTSO.com and a few others.  I am also in the wine clubs for some of my favorite producers, which tends to be a bit more costly, but much more satisfying!  Someday I hope to visit your state, till then we can share wine!
