and to offer you wines at a fair price.

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.

Contact Us...
If you're looking for a specific bottle of wine or have a question about pairing wine with a special meal, please contact us. We'd love to help.
You may reach us at (808) 933-1471 or email at randy@grapeshawaii.com.

Grapes's 2017 Thanksgiving Wine!
Albert Bichot
2014 Savigny-Les-Beaune

Aloha Grapes Gang —

Yes, Grapes's 2017 Thanksgiving turkey wine has arrived!

Drum roll please... Grapes's choice for the 2017 Thanksgiving is the 2014 Albert Bichot's Sauvigny-Les-Beaune (Sav-veen-ne lay Bone). The town of Sauvigny is located just northwest of the city of Beaune in the Côte d'Or region of Burgundy, France.

100% Pinot Noir, the 2014 vintage has more weight than wines from Beaujolais without being clumsy. Not as brash as a pinot from Napa or Sonoma, and much more behaved than Lodi without the earthiness that some Oregon vintages have, Sauvigny-Les-Beaune displays delicate grace and charm. Its aromas are filled with cherry, plum and tangerine rind with flavors of blackberries, bright Suriname cherries, cherry pie and a tart dry finish with refreshing soft tannins. The wine will be an excellent foil to the richness of your turkey, stuffing, gravy and all of your trimmings. Normally priced at $28.00, we offer this marvelous Burgundy for $24.00. Please allow 15-minutes of air time, slightly chilled.

Wishing you and your family a most wonderful Thanksgiving.

Peace to all, and thank you for your patronage at Grapes – A Wine Store.

Last Word:
As always, Grapes has a large selection of wines for your Thanksgiving and holiday pleasure with prices to match your pocketbook.

Looking forward to seeing you! Randy
