Elizabeth Weintraub • Sacramento Real Estate Agent: December 2018

Interesting Vineyard in Volcano, Hawaii

When one imagines a scenery of green hills rolling on the horizon into infinity, dotted with seemingly perfectly aligned rows of grapes, one may not often conjur up an image of a volcano in that same frame. However, when I stopped to consider that the defining factors of wine is based in part on soil, elevation and climate, it doesn't seem so odd to find a vineyard on a volcanic island.

Probably what I enjoyed most was the creativity and use of local ingredients to produce local wines. Really good local wines! Anybody in Napa can turnout a decent pinot, but who can do a brilliant guava grape wine, for example? You can read more in my personal blog today and see more photos at this link: The Southernmost Winery in America Will Amaze You.

Hard to believe that prior to 2018, the last big eruption from the volcano Kilauea on the Big Island happened 35 years ago. At that point in my life I was completely engrossed in selling real estate in Newport Beach (southern California). I do not… more

When a listing agent deals with enough buyer's agents, the same story often pops up over and over. It is this crazy talk of commitment, dedication, and unrelenting love for the property, when much of it is puffery. Some buyer's agents will say… more
