Sip and savor the aromatic flavors of wines specially grown on the slopes of the Mauna Loa volcano. Located above Kilauea at an elevation of 4,000 feet, the Volcano Winery has been producing award-winning wines since 1993. According to Hawaiian legend, Mauna Loa was formed by the volcano goddess Pele when she was fleeing her jealous sister Na-maka-o-kaha'i. Pele made the mountain tall and large so her sister could not send ocean waves to put out the fires of Pele's volcano. These mythical deities may be long gone, but today, Mauna Loa's rich volcanic soil is ideal for growing plump and tasty grapes. During a tour, you'll learn how local fruits such as guava and jaboticaba berry are used to create a variety of unique blends. And no winery tour would be complete without a premium wine tasting paired with gourmet cheese and crackers.

Special Notes:
