Winter Wine Escape, November
Why talk about the Winter Wine Escape now? Well because it is great excuse to plan a visit to Hawaii.

The Big Island's Winter Wine Escape is celebrating its 10th birthday this year, the Big Island's famed wine event starts with a bang--an opening-day party called the Prelude, where 50-plus wineries pour their best bottles of the past decade and 18 guest chefs cook in a courtyard overlooking the Pacific surf. The Wine Escape is hosted by the beautiful Mauna Kea Beach Hotel, founded by Laurance Rockefeller in 1962. The festivities take place both at the Mauna Kea, which retains the rakish glamour of the original jet set, and at its much younger sister hotel, the spacious and beige Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel, where James Bond would feel equally at home.

This year's roster includes New Yorkers Tom Colicchio of Gramercy Tavern and Craft, Jimmy Bradley of The Harrison, Marcus Samuelsson of Aquavit and F&W Best New Chef 2001 honoree Anita Lo of Annisa. Nuevo Latino maestro Randy Zweiban of Chicago's Nacional 27 cooks, teaches and serves this year's designated trendy cuisine. When it all gets too much, attendees can flop on the hotels' private white-sand beaches--two of the Big Island's finest.
