Volcano Winery

Volcano Winery, Big Island

Hawaii isn't known as a wine destination, but the Big Island is home to the Volcano Winery, where visitors are treated to free wine tastings and can purchase unique Hawaiian fruit-blended wines with exotic names, such as Volcano Red and Volcano Blush.

The winery's specialties are two award-winning white wines made from the Symphony grape. The resulting wine is a cross between the Grenache Gris and Muscat, with a slight spiciness and a fruity flavor. Also a hit among visitors is the Macadamia Nut Honey Wine, perhaps because of its distinctly Hawaiian flavor. The sweet, tangy taste makes it a popular after-dinner wine. There are also fruit-blended wines flavored with local fruits, such as yellow guava and jaboticaba.

Many of the wines are only available in Hawaii, so often times visitors take home a bottle or two. FAA regulations don’t allow liquids on the plane (wines included), so you can have the wine packed to fit in your check-in luggage. Packaging is available for boxes of 3, 6, and 12 bottles. They only ship to a limited number of states, so check for shipping policies before ordering.

The Volcano Winery is the southernmost winery in the United States. Located in Volcano, it makes for a great side trip if you’re visiting other attractions in the area, such as the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Hours: Open daily from 10 am to 5:30 pm
