MANTA at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel will host Master Sommelier Patrick Okubo on Tuesday, May 22 at 4:00 p.m. This event is limited just 40 guests and you will not want to miss it!  Patrick is one of only 249 people worldwide ever to have achieved the Master Sommelier (MS) designation. At the age of 29, he was also the youngest to achieve the MS designation.

The combination of wonderful wine and a great story will make for a very fun and inspiring tasting. Afterward, why not plan to glide seamlessly into a sunset dinner? The cost for the tasting is $30 per person. Wine tasting and dinner reservations can be made by calling (808) 882-5707.
