Pono Story: The search for balance and connection – this is what ancient Hawaiians call living Pono. It is a continuous celebration of living in the moment. An appreciation for where we are and where we are going as we embrace life’s journey.
The Hawaiian fishhook, known as Makua, symbolizes all positivity that exists in this world. When given as a gift, it promises prosperity, strength and good fortune. Pono Wines founder and native Hawaiian son, Dave Sedeno, invites you to open a bottle and savor the here and now. It’s time to enjoy and share the Pono in your life.
Dave Sedeno, native Hawaiian and Pono Wines founder, experienced a journey of his own to get to where he is today. Two decades ago he began working with many world-renowned wineries and winemakers in Napa and Sonoma. During that time, he met winemaker Grant Long Jr. Their friendship was fostered by their shared deep knowledge of wine and their passion for sharing it with a world of waiting explorers. Together, they created Pono Wine.
Winery Tasting Notes: “Fresh lime peel and green melon meld well with the floral notes of honey suckle and lily. The pallet is flush with cardamom spiced pear, ripe white peach and lemon candy. The acidity is round and rich but has a brightness that lingers.”
