- Volcano WineryOct 11, 2013
It's the only winery on the island. Although, Hawaii climate isn't ideal for wine, they do a good job and they offer tastings. It's one of those hawaiian sites that's really not close to anything other than the Volcanoes National Park, so it's not worth the drive just to go there, but I suppose they get most of their business from people going to the park and looking for something else to do in the area.Recommended for:

Even as a self proclaimed Wine-O from Northern California, I have to throw out all known things about wine to just enjoy the fact that there's a winery on a volcano. I mean, how cool is that.
The Honey was taking me around the island on our special day and indulged me on my request to check out the volcanoes. He suggested we spend some time at the Volcano Winery before exploring the lava tubes. I know, he's a keeper....
Upon pulling up to the tasting room, you'll notice a few rows of grape vines as it leads you to the small but quaint building. We were warmly greeted as we entered the tasting room and were invited to participate in the free tastings. YES PLEASE!
We tried seven wines that day:
-Macademia Nut Honey
-Black Tea Infused Wine
To be honest, I cannot say that the wines were the best I've ever had. However, they were enjoyable & I would recommend them to any fan of sweet wines. We did particulary like the Symphony Mele with its light hints of fruit flavors and nabbed a few bottle to bring home.
The volcano winery just began cultivating it's own teas which they began infusing into some wines. Interesting flavor---unique though I'm not sure if I could have a whole glass of it myself.
The tasting room also had some great gift items: tshirts, glasses, bottle covers, etc. But one of the real gems at there was the hilarious woman who did our pourings. She had us cracking up the entire time.
VERY enjoyable and can easily be done within 30-45 minutes on your way up to the craters.
