Founded in 1845, the ranch stretches from the ocean to around 6,000 feet (1,830 meters) in elevation, with the restaurant, store, and winery at around 2,000 feet (610 meters). Visitors come here for the sweeping views, or to enjoy a meal at the Ulupalakua Ranch Store & Grill, with burgers made from beef, lamb, and elk from the ranch or locally sourced. MauiWine, which offers tastings of locally grown and produced wine, is also a popular reason for visit.
