Alaska

There are no vineyards in this state USA but a wine producer. The Denali Winery, named after a nearby mountain, was founded in 1997 by Judy Hall of Anchorage (62nd parallel), Alaska's largest city. The operation was taken over in 2011 by the couple Mike and Catherine Bessent. The company buys grape must mainly from California, but also from many other countries in 5-gallon units (about 20 liters). Among them is an icewine made from frozen Riesling grapes. The labels decorate various wild animals of Alaska (bear, eagle, elk, dolphin etc.). Part of it is sold to private customers along with a wine making set (small fermenters, yeast, crisps essence, miscellaneous) to make their home-made wine in home winemaking. However, grape juice supplied by customers can be processed into wine in the desired form.
