Jill Shiroma founded her distinctive libation shop because of her love of wines and spirits and her desire to fulfill the lifestyle needs of the modern generation. SWAM offers customers an eclectic variety of vino and spirits, with an emphasis on friendly and personal service. The shop's walls are lined with cherry shelves that are fully stocked with rare and unique drinkables, including hard-to-find wines and spirits, such as Hello Kitty wines (available in the pinot nero white and the pinot nero red)—a beverage brand far superior to Flintstones chewable champagne.

Once a month at Formaggio Grill, guests indulge in four-course meals paired with fine wines. It sounds like a typical dinner party, save one difference: no one can see a thing. The monthly event is called Dining in the Dark, and Formaggio Grill hopes that it will encourage guests to slow down, savor their dinners, and even reconsider their approaches to fine dining. Even without the blindfolds, Formaggio Grill touts that mission with careful preparation of Mediterranean-style cuisine in a warm, welcoming space. Chefs smoke prime rib over kiawe wood and toss pastas with housemade sausage. Servers are happy to help pair entrees with selections from a list of more than 50 wines from around the world. The restaurant envelops diners in warm reds and golds, and low light casts plush red stools and a wooden bar in a warm glow. The artwork of Ron Genta adds splashes of color to the walls, and local musicians take to the stage on the weekends to entertain patrons with smooth guitar sounds or the dulcet tones of a whale’s song.

Featured in Pacific Edge and Go Kailua Magazine for their trailblazing approach to crafting wine, Oeno Winemaking owners Marshall Zeigler and Bryon Crowther offer an eclectic variety of wines made with European techniques, and have recently added beers to their repertoire. The winery hosts wine-sampling sessions, which educate sippers on the nuances of aroma and body while imparting the skills of proper swirling, sniffing, and tasting. Patrons choose their favorite wine or beer, which is handmade and aged for six to eight weeks in a temperature-controlled cellar-type crypt. Customers purchasing barrels return with friends and family for a two-hour bottling event. Amidst their cache of bottles and corks, Oeno also stocks beer-making kits, which include materials for up to five gallons of homebrews.
