Hawaii, chain of islands in the Pacific and one of the 50 united states. It produces mainly fruit wines, notably a sparkling pineapple wine, as well as some grape wines from varieties such as symphony, carnelian, and a little Syrah grown at high elevations on the islands of Big Island and Maui respectively. The humid climate encourages fungal diseases.
