Alaska

There are no vineyards in this state of the United States, but a wine producer. Denali Winery, named after a nearby mountain, was founded in 1997 by Judy Hall in Anchorage (62nd parallel), Alaska's largest city. The business was taken over by the couple Mike and Catherine Bessent in 2011. 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 ice wine made from frozen Riesling grapes. The labels adorn various Alaskan wild animals (bear, eagle, elk, dolphin etc.). A part of it is sold together with a wine making set (small fermentation tanks, yeast, essence of chips, other) to private customers, who use it to make their home-made wine in "home winemaking". However, grape juice supplied by customers can be processed into wine in the desired form.
