Grapes Hawaii...A Wine Store {spacer}
Grapes' Mission...
Grapes' mission is to provide you
the best in personalized service,
increase your knowledge about wine,
and to offer you wines at a fair price.

{spacer} {spacer}
Who We Are...
Grapes is Hilo's first and only dedicated wine store. We don't sell beer, hard liquor, cigarettes, beef-jerky, wine gizmos…you get the idea. The store is cozy (200 sq feet!) and specializes in wines not commonly found in super markets. Grapes offers you a selection of over 100 different wines from around the world, with most wines priced between $10-$13 per bottle (of course this doesn't stop us from buying Brunello's either).
The proprietor of Grapes is Randy Nunokawa. Randy is committed to finding you the best wines for the best value. He tastes all wines prior to sale to assure you of quality and to help you with wine and food pairings, (Hey, it's a hard job, but somebody has to do it!).

Our Location...
Some of our first time customers have a hard time finding Grapes. We're located in the town of Hilo on the east side of Hawai'i Island, on Kilauea Avenue between Ponahawai and Mamo Streets; across the street is Subway and Lucy's Taqueria. Yep, this is a small town where most directions are given based on landmarks. Street parking is available as well as the gravel parking lot on the corner of Mamo Street that fronts the downtown KTA Super Store.

Service Hours...
Grapes is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12 noon to 6:00 p.m. We are closed on Sundays because that's when Randy plays golf and on Mondays because that's when he recovers from playing golf.

Thursday, May 25, 2017
3:00p - 6:30p

How are you guys? Clarysse and I had a marvelous visit to Seattle and the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. We had a delicious dinner at Matt's in the Market located 32-steps above and fronting Pike's Market in Seattle. The restaurant practices farm to table seasonal cuisine, and gosh their food was fantastic. We also had wonderful stay at the Grand Okanagan Hotel on the shores of Lake Okanagan, and a terrific tour of the wineries of the Kelowna and Naramata Bench region with Kris Johnson of Experience Wine Tours. We tasted some outstanding wines, but the only downside is that they don't export them to the U.S. A true bummers!

To make up for lost time, Grapes will be showcasing five new wines: from Ca'Momi their new white wine called Bianco Di Napa; a very dry rose from VilliViva; a smoky down-to-earth Cabernet from Chile by Pionero; an outstanding Crianza from Cune De Reyes; and an electric Sauvignon Blanc from Frenzy.

Looking forward to seeing you and your friends this Thursday! Randy

Spanish Wine Pairing Dinner
with Charles & Randy!
Monday, June 12, 2017

July of last year, Charles Fredy, V.P., Director of Sales and Marketing of Chambers & Chambers, and I were invited to Spain by iconic Spanish wine merchant Jorge Ordonez. Called the "Death March" by Jorge, we spent two weeks touring vineyards and wineries that were associated with him. Needless to say we tasted an innumerable amount of wines; many of which could compete against the very best that the wine world could offer. After receiving our liver transplants (joking), Charles and I are ready to showcase many of the Spanish wines we tasted.

Please join us for this premier event on Monday, June 12, 2017 at Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill.

All of the wines presented will be offered for sale at discounted prices!

It will be a wonderful evening chatting with Charles and me, sampling the wines of Jorge Ordonez and enjoying a special meal prepared by Jackie Rey's.

Looking forward to seeing you and your friends are this stellar event! Randy
