talk wineredowrhiteWhen thinking of wine making regions, the hot, tropical Hawaiian Islands do not spring quickly to mind. Typically, most of the world's grape grow-ing is done in moderate climates, between the 30th and 50th parallels. However, skiing, a seemingly far less likely activity than viticulture, also takes place in Hawaii. Both pursuits are made possible this far south because of the higher elevations of volcanic mountains and ridges. Some winemakers will try to grow grapes pretty much anywhere. Proof of this is found near the equator, where the Aloha State's two wineries - on the islands of Hawaii and Maui - grow Symphony, the only grape raised there for wine making. Symphony grape is a white grape that is a cross between Muscat and Grenache Gris, and grows exceedingly well in Hawaii's climate. If you love off-dry, fruity wine, the wines of Hawaii may be just what you are looking for. Volcano Winery - This Hawaii winery uses Symphony grapes and other fruits to create some amazing Hawaiian wine. Choose from two Sym-phony wines, as well as a variety of fruit blends, or their signature Honey Wine. Their Hawaiian Sym-phony Dry is an excellent wine, with aromas that include lychee, and flavors of peaches and apricots. Their famous Honey Wine is made from Macadamia Nut honey and makes for a sweet dessert wine with intriguing flavors. They also offer three fruit blend wines that consist of flavors (and fruits) such as yel-low guava, jaboticaba berry and others, with names such as Volcano Red (which has amazing aromas of black cherry and cranberry) and Volcano Blush.Tedeschi Vineyards - Established in 1974, this Hawaii winery has been producing outstanding Hawaii wines since 1977. Originally a sugar cane plantation that was established in 1856, Tedeschi Vineyards creates such wines as Maui Noveau, Rose Ranch Cuvee, and Maui Splash. Whether you are searching for a robust red wine or a fruity pine-apple one, you will find it here at these Hawaiian vineyards. Be sure to try their Ulupalakua Red, a delightful wine which has aromas of black cherries and currants, followed by flavors of blackberry and spice. Also try their Maui Blanc, a semi-dry wine that is made from the pineapples of Maui. The Wines of Hawaii
