Sitting next to the equally impressive wine store that supplies the treasures dished out in this underground wine bar cum restaurant, Formaggio has become a must-visit scene for wine lovers visiting Hawaii.
The food is not the lure although we admire what they can turn out of their tiny kitchen, it is the well-chosen wine list that is the main attraction. You can start in the Rhone Valley with a St Joseph white then move to New Zealand for the impressive Vavasour Pinot Noir. And you can stop in Italy, the United States and Australia on the way!
Formaggio also has a super-impressive red wine drink dispenser and temperature controller that you can admire while sitting at the bar sipping your favourite wine.
If you decide for something a little stronger then you can't go past the Springbank scotch whisky one of the most impressive to come out of Scotland.
And if you still feel thirsty drop into the wine store next door and snap up a Domaine Tempier Bandol or a Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
