A history of the longest running wine festival in the US...maybe?
Recently, Kapalua Resort on Maui threw its 29th annual Kapalua Wine and Food Festival, of which Master Sommelier and festival host Fred Dame wrote in the festival guide, “I believe that makes us the longest surviving wine and food event in the USA. If not, who cares!” And that sort of sums up the vibe of KWFF.
