About Maui Wines
Maui’s only winery began in 1974 with a partnership between C. Pardee Erdman, owner of Ulupalakua Ranch, and Emil Tedeschi, who came from a family history of winemaking in Calistoga, California. Between the two of them, they had both the rich volcanic land they needed and the know-how to work it into something new and unique. Together they identified the perfect growing location for the vines and figured out how to refit some existing buildings on the former Rose Ranch estate for winemaking. Today, the winery is built around these historic buildings, just down the road from the vineyard, which encompasses 23 acres of beautiful Maui countryside.
