Wine Tasting at Original Roy's

The original Roy’s Hawaii Kai had so much fun with last year’s "industry-style" wine tasting, they decided to make it an annual affair.

On Wednesday, August 11th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Roy’s Restaurant presents an evening with seventeen leading wineries from across the country at the flagship Roy’s Hawaii Kai.

The industry style wine tasting, which is normally only open to industry professionals, will feature 17 wineries and more than 90 labels. This is a rare opportunity for non-professional wine enthusiasts to experience some really great American labels and broaden their palates.
