Aloha and welcome to Maui Ku'ia Estate Chocolate Factory's chocolate tastings. Enjoy breathtaking 360-degree views from our second story open-air pavilion while being led through three flights of chocolate (a minimum of nine pieces) by our Founder and CEO, Gunars Valkirs, or our VP of Everything Chocolate, Dan O‘Doherty. Learn why your body is perfectly engineered to enjoy chocolate and how to pair chocolate with beverages. Taste our international and national award-winning chocolate made from cacao grown on our Lahaina farm. Experience the chocolate making process from farm to factory via videos narrated by our Founder and insights that only he or Dan can provide.
The Chocolate Bar is now open in the pavilion and offers wines, spirits and beer that are paired with our chocolate flights. We have recommended pairings (see below), or you can make your own choices from our List. Our experienced chocolate sommeliers will help you make your decision. Please come at least 30 minutes before a guided tasting so that your beverage order can be taken before the tasting begins and you can review our beverage options to help inform your choices.
