Pono: Napa wines inspired by Hawaii

Pono is a Hawaiian word with many meanings, vintner Dave Sedeno explained.

“It almost takes up a whole page in a dictionary. It means balance, connection to the land, leaving it better than you found it, understanding that a rising tide lifts all ships.”

Founded in 2015 by Dave Sedeno and Grant Long Jr., Pono Wines is a new artisan producer based in California’s Napa Valley. The winery was named after the Hawaiian word “Pono” that has a depth of meaning – balance, a connection to the land, living in harmony, doing the right thing, leaving something better than how you found it, righteousness, and fairness.
