Island Mana Wines
Island Mana Wines’ owner, Mark, has lived in three primary locales: Portland, Hawaii, and the sky, where he spent much of his early career as a pilot and engineer in the US Air Force. But now, Mark’s focus is less on the sky than on the fruits of the earth and the wine they produce. He and his team blend natural and organic fruits into their wines, creating small batches that evoke Hawaiian sunsets and Portland tableaus.
Though crafted from guava, passionfruit, and mango, the dry Hawaiian vintages avoid over-sweetness more effectively than many fruit-filled wines and those made from Raisinets. The winery also features traditional Oregon wine styles, such as pinot gris, chardonnay, and cabernet sauvignon.
