Itching for a tropical vacation? What about a Hawaiian staycation?
We've put together a very special package that may just transport you directly to the islands...without even leaving home! This is a combination of an award-winning Sparkling Wine, crafted by Pono Wines in Napa Valley by a native Hawaiian, and some 'ono (delicious) sweets made and shipped to us from the Big Island of Hawaii.
What's included in this Hawaiian themed Gift Set:
• One bottle of Pono 2018 Ali'i Blanc de Noir Sparkling Wine
• Hawaiian Red Chili Toffee with Smoked Salt and Almonds covered in Dark Chocolate
• Mika Dark Chocolate Covered Mints
About the wine:
Dave Sedeno is a native Hawaiian (from the island of Oahu) who has pursued a career in the wine industry on a part-time basis for more than two decades. To all Hawaiians, pono is a way of life. It’s also a commitment to leaving all things in a better place than when first encountered and additionally, pono is understanding and appreciating that life can be both simple and complex -- the perfect name for his Pono Wines brand.
The fantastic 2018 Ali'i Blanc de Noir Sparkling Wine by Pono Wines has aromas of bright strawberry, wild raspberries and a well-balanced citrus palate that are all tied together with lively, long-lasting bubbles. The grapes for this Blanc de Noir come from Thompson Vineyard off of Los Carneros Road, a site that has been farmed by the same family for 80 years. Ali'i means 'royalty' or 'for the King/Queen', and with a name like that you know it has to be good! Cheers!
About the Sweets:
Big Island Candies was founded by Allan Ikawa in 1977 in Hilo (on the Big Island) and has continuously introduced new and imaginative products to eagerly awaiting customers, while only using the highest grade of ingredients.
The Hawaiian Red Chili Toffee has an alluring outer layer of rich dark chocolate that leads you to try the red-chili butter toffee inside. Embedded with roasted almonds and a touch of hickory smoked salt, each square is highlighted by the subtle, yet significant heat of the Hawaii-grown chili, which definitely announces its arrival. While the slight heat works well with the Sparkling effervescence, it also pairs beautifully with a red wine.
The Mika Dark Chocolate Covered Mints are soft nibbles that feature a dark-chocolate coating on the outside, and on the inside, a smooth, lightly whipped blend of dark and milk chocolate, cream and butter, and finally, a cooling touch of mint flavor. Makes an ideal pairing for Sparkling, red and white wines alike!
We have a very limited supply of these incredible Hawaiian sweets and Sparkling, so don't miss out on your staycation!
*Both the Toffee and Chocolate Mints are Gluten-Free
