If you are looking for a spot with a hip vibe to enjoy a glass of wine, live music, and a delicious bite to eat during your Hawaiian vacation, we highly recommend checking out one of the newer destinations on the island of Koloa, Kauai Hawaii. The Tasting Room located on easy-to-find Koloa Road on the south side is ready to welcome you and your companions with open arms…and with a wonderful wine collection. But make reservations… Everyone is toasting The Tasting Room as a must-visit hot spot you have to experience.
The Tasting Room was opened in 2019 to create an authentic wine bar that is designed to exceed the expectations of everyone who visits. Both experienced wine enthusiasts and those new to the vino experience will gather and share their love for delicious food, fabulous wines, and share the Hawaiian way of life. The owners’ mission is to share their love and knowledge of wine and delicious cuisine with our customers. And that is exactly what they do. Every visit to The Tasting Room is unique and memorable and so much fun!
This family-owned establishment is perfect for visitors from all over the world because it features a warm welcoming atmosphere. Plus they offer a variety of food selections that pair wonderfully with any wine you select. Their menu features small bites as they call them, including Charcuterie boards, small plates, and delicious dining options. We recommend the olive tapenade, a top seller which is always exceptional. We think you agree that olives and wine pair extremely well.
Everything on the menu is superb, but the fresh salads featuring a mouthwatering homemade dressing and the flatbread pizza topped with Hawaii grown ingredients top our list. We have to give a nod to the French onion soup and bruschetta, too. You won’t be disappointed with anything you order.
Some other menu items you might like to include:
The Tasting Room Salad.
Fill your taste buds with butter lettuce, peppered bacon, bleu cheese, pear tomatoes, pickled onions, and a delicious garlic dill buttermilk dressing.
Seared Prime Filet.
Served rare and chilled — topped with crispy fried capers and baby arugula.
The knowledgeable wait staff is so helpful, a testament to Hawaiian hospitality. Most reviews of The Tasting Room are 5 stars. Guests love it so much, they make reservations to return the next day! It’s interesting to know that If you fall in love with one of the wine selections you taste, pop right next door to The Wine Shop, another shopping spot that is also part of the family. They just might have a bottle for you to purchase and take back home with you.
You’ll love the atmosphere of The Tasting Room that is designed for both small intimate groups and larger parties. If you are planning a destination wedding, anniversary party, bridal shower, or other special events while in Hawaii, The Tasting Room can easily accommodate you.
