Hawaiians have long honored Pele, the fiery goddess of the volcano. We have created a wine to honor her tempestuous, passionate spirit. Volcano Red is a medium bodied red wine that blends both red and white grapes with the island’s exotic jaboticaba berries. It boasts ripe black cherry and cranberry notes, then finishes with a light-bodied pepper spice to mimick Pele’s smoldering heart.
Jaboticaba berries are a tropical fruit native to Brazil. Check out this video documentary (voiced in Portuguese) for a look at Jaboticaba trees, which are also found in Hawaii and other tropical regions.
