Wine? In Alaska?
natural bounty of wild berries AND hardy grapes to make great tasting ice wines
-- Alaska remains the last great frontier of wine making in America.
With a short growing season to be sure, wine pioneers make the most of it. So if you're visiting following a particularly cold spring and summer, don't be surprised to find different home-grown wines on the menu as different fruit crops survive from year to year despite the weather!
A bit of the
grape (or the berry) is just what's needed on those long dark
Alaskan nights, and local wine makers are heeding the call.
