Catch A Flight With Us

We are now offering wine flights when you are dining in our restaurant. You choose five wines and a pour of each will be delivered to your table for just $5.

Peace Poles

On September 21—World Peace Day—we installed eleven peace poles in the new Beauty From Ashes Garden. Winery co-owner, Kim Roberts, painted each as a unique work of art with the phrase “May Peace Prevail on Earth.” Additionally, every sculpture has a historic quote of inspiration.

Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” Albert Einstein

Fabulous Floats

Our collectible hand-blown float balls are available in Cougar, Husky and Seahawk colors! Plus, we’ll have plenty of holiday colors in December along with our medicine wheel floats.

A Case of Hamau Side

Hamau Side, the third book in winery co-owner Kim Roberts’ mystery series featuring Aloha Jones, was released in September. The prequels Luna Sea and Poi Son are half-priced when purchased with Hamau Side. All these books are available for Kindle on Amazon.

The Canvas to Our Imagination

We’re delighted to unveil the Courage sculpture by Tyler Hansen of McCleary in our Four Season Garden. Be sure to discover eight recycled pallet benches made by Neil Emerick of Raymond and painted by Kim Roberts. These collaborative works of art are located in the new Beauty From Ashes, Color Wheel, Four Season, Victorian Wedding, Moon Gardens and Dog Park.

Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art.”Ralph Waldo Emerson

Gardens of Earthly Delights

Color Wheel Garden: This new garden is located just past the golf course pond. You’ll see it from a distance since it features eight giant colored pencils and a Dr. Seuss bench.

Four Season Garden: This is a great example of how to create and keep interest all year round.

White Wedding Garden: It’s all planted in white blooms as the perfect backdrop for every wedding photo.

Victorian Wedding Lawn, Wedding Pavilion and Wedding Ready Room: This new grassy glade is the place to share vows next to our reception pavilion. A quaint little changing room is designed for calm thoughts and close friends.

Expanded Hours and Food To Go

For your convenience we are increasing our restaurant hours! We are now serving fresh, homemade fare daily from 11am to 7pm. If you’re on your way home from work or heading to the beach for vacation you can stop by or call ahead and we’ll make your meal to go!

Mark Your Calendar

Marine biologist Alan Rammer will offer the FREE lecture Bountiful Beachcombing on Sunday, January 24 from 4-6.

Gardens Gone Wild!

Near the wooded ravine on the west side of the resort we are planning three new features. The first is Nature’s Amphitheater for concerts and wildlife viewing. The second is our Wild Things Garden, inhabited with sculptures from this favorite children’s book. And third is our Creature Feature.

The Creature Feature is where you can watch our new Nigerian Dwarf goats when they arrive in November. These two wethers (neutered males) are tasked with clearing the weedy underbrush. General manager Carrie Roberts named the goats Thunderhoof and Skydancer after two of her favorite childhood book and cartoon characters.

They join our farm’s Swedish Blue Duck Periwinkle, and our Tibetan Swamp Pandas (Chows) Lulu and Curzon. This spring will bring chickens back to our farm along with pearl guineas.

Wine Club Perks

It’s free to join! Members receive 20% off wine and 10% off gifts and plants. With membership you receive complimentary wine tasting for you and your guests.

We charge your quarterly wine club order on the first Friday of February, May, August and November, but you can pick-up your wines at your convenience.

You can keep the selections we made or you can easily exchange them for your preferences. We’re flexible.

Making Things Right

Let’s face it: We all make mistakes. It’s not the goal, but it happens. Your feedback matters most while you are here and we can take positive steps to remedy your concerns. So, if there’s a problem, let us know. Talk to your server or ask to speak to a manager. Let’s fix it together!
