Chef Eric Morrisette
In 2011, Chef Eric Morrissette took his boss’s advice to follow his passion, and left his native New England for Maui — where a few exceptional local chefs introduced him to island cuisine and helped add layers of sophistication to his palate. Among his most important mentors is his mother, a baker who gave her son the ingredients for a successful kitchen: integrity and attention to detail. As executive chef at Fleetwood’s on Front St., Morrissette enjoys creating dishes for patrons who delight in exploring the world of elite cuisine.
Turley Wine Cellars
Hailed by Wine Spectator in 2013 as one of the stars of zinfandel, Larry Turley has been credited with distinguishing the modern varietal. His secret: “I produce wines that I love to drink.” We invite you to experience Turley’s iconic, organically farmed wines, masterfully paired with a menu by Chef Eric Morrissette.
Throughout the year, the ʻAipono Winemaker’s Dinner Series brings the industry’s top winemakers to ʻAipono award-winning restaurants.
