Fodor's Expert Review Kamuela Liquor Store
From the outside it doesn't look like much, but this store sells the best selection of premium spirits, wines, and gourmet items on the island. Alvin, the owner, is a collector of fine wines, as evidenced by his multiple cellars. Wine-and-cheese tastings take place Friday afternoon from 3 to 6 and Saturday at noon—the store offers an extensive selection of artisanal cheeses from around the world. Favorites like duck mousse round out the inventory.
