Chambers & Chambers Wine Merchants
Est. 1973

Chambers & Chambers was established in Napa Valley, California, by siblings Jack and Suzanne Chambers and Jack’s wife, Barbara. The trio ran all aspects of the business themselves, from purchase and delivery to accounting and administration. Their sweat equity paid off, and soon the company began to represent several wine estates in Burgundy, France. In 1979 the company began to distribute select wines from California. Jack was also an airline pilot, and while based in Hawai‘i he noticed that there was a very limited selection of quality wines in the islands. He saw an opportunity for expansion, and the company started distributing wine all over Hawai‘i.

Today, Chambers & Chambers has more than 100 employees and handles wines, spirits and sake from nearly 300 wineries in 15 countries. Many of these libations are served in restaurants and sold in hotels and retail shops on Maui. Every year, the company participates in the Kapalua Wine & Food Festival and also sponsors wines for Maui Nō Ka ‘Oi Magazine’s ‘Aipono Wine Dinner Series and annual ‘Aipono Awards Gala. | FB/IG @ChambersWinesHawaii | 808.832.4900
