Maui Gold Pineapple Company

Ah, the sweet virtues of fresh, succulent Maui Gold® pineapple! Just a whiff or taste of this extra-sweet fruit evokes tropical breezes, rich volcanic soil and the kiss of sunshine.

Maui Gold® is grown exclusively by the locally owned and operated Maui Gold Pineapple Company. When you buy a Maui Gold® pineapple, you can be confident that it was carefully raised by skilled, devoted farmers in the most naturally advantageous location in the world. Send a little aloha to friends and family in the continental U.S. Freshly harvested and packaged, pineapples are guaranteed delivery two days from the shipment date. 


Ulupalakua Vineyard Maui winery

Ulupalakua Vineyards

Draped along the volcanic slopes of Haleakala, Ulupalakua Vineyards is perfectly poised to create remarkable wines. Nature offers a solid foundation: gentle sunshine, cool temperatures, and rich volcanic soils produce layered and complex flavors from the vineyard’s fruit. Protected by afternoon cloud cover and cool trade winds, twenty-three acres of Syrah, Malbec, Grenache, Viognier, Chenin Blanc, and Gewurztraminer receive constant attention by nurturing hands. An extended growing season and temperate climate allow the grapes to develop fully, while intentionally small harvests draw upon only the finest fruit, resulting in vibrant, flavorful wines. The Ulupalakua Vineyards winemaking team takes over where nature leaves off, crafting fine wines that reflects Maui distinct flavor, and offering a sense of place with every sip. Visitors are invited to gain an appreciation for Ulupalakua’s unique growing conditions during private vineyard tours.

Located on Ulupalakua Ranch along Hwy. 37
