This wine shop was a fabulous find on the Big Island. In addition to a very fine wine selection, the store carried micro-brewery beer and local cheeses. The owner was very helpful in our selections. Highly recommended!

Went for Friday wine tasting twice, they offer a discount on the wines that are offered for tasting.
The store has a good selection of wine with prices that can be fairly low to high end wines. Some prices were about the same as on the mainland (Midwest).
There is a nice ocean view from the window.
Will shop there again next trip to Kona.

This is not a big place nor is it anything to compete with places like Trader Joe's, but the staff are helpful and it is pretty convenient as it is near both airport and Costco, the first stop for many travellers who rent properties down here in Hawaii. This is a nice place to find specialty items like the wines form the local wineries. They have a good selection of high end wines and great selection of Champagnes and Sparkling wines. There is also a beer section where the local brews can be found and Gourmet specialty items like local honey and even snails. Pleasant surprise at Christmas time was that they do gift baskets.

Obviously we did not expect a "super store" selection of wines, but there was a nice variety of wines. Local Hawaii wines were spotlighted, and there were two racks of Robin's Choice and Howard's Choice. We grabbed a couple white wines from Robin's choices, we were not familiar with either...and they were really nice wines. I would say spend the extra couple bucks here instead of buying wine at Costco!

The Kona Wine Market has a fantastic selection of high end wines along with the "every day" choices. We attended a couple of tastings at this shop and enjoyed a nice selection of local delicacies as well, such as locally canned honey. It is located in a big box strip mall but the owners have turned the interior into a dark wooded, cool and classy wine cellar feeling. If you are looking for wine on the big Island, this is your shop!
