Imagine wine made with tropical fruits like yellow guava and the exotic jaboticaba berry, yet blended with traditional wine grapes to capture the essence of the aloha spirit. You can find it at the Big Island's only winery, and enjoy a wine tasting before you ship it home.
If you are taking a day trip up to the cool Volcano climate, or staying in the area, Volcano Winery is a tasty must stop location. The winery has created two award winning wines made with the Symphony grape, and offers the oh so tasty Macadamia Nut Honey Wine, made with blossoms from the island's macadamia nut trees.
The tasting room is open every day of the year from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. The winery ships to certain U.S. states, and can package up the wine so it can be brought on the plane in checked baggage.
Volcano itself is a beautiful area at 4,000 feet elevation, with nearby views of both volcanoes.
Symphony wines- The Symphony grape is a white grape that is a cross between Muscat of Alexandria and Grenache Gris. It was created at UC Davis in California, and was chosen for planting because of its ability to grow well in Volcano's climate. The Symphony grape has a bouquet of peach, apricot, and lychee and our award-winning wines are a fine accompaniment for dinner.
Fruit blended wines-
Volcano Winery blends local island fruits like yellow guava and exotic jaboticaba with grapes to create their original Hawaiian fruit blended wines. Volcano Red, Volcano Blush, and Hawaiian Guava Wine are their 3 fruit-blended wines, each capturing its own distinctly Hawaiian twist. Jaboticaba and yellow guava fruit from the island are blended with grapes, resulting in light, fruity wines that are as original as they are bursting with the flavors of the island.
Honey wine- 100% Macadamia Nut honey is used to make their signature honey wine. Honeybees pollinate the blossoms on the island's macadamia nut trees, resulting in pure Hawaiian honey from the island which is used to make the popular honey wine. A sweet delight for locals, visitors, and anyone who wants a sip of Hawaiian honey wine from the Big Island.
