Winery sights in Alaska
- Sort by:
Wineries are scarcer than vineyards in Alaska, but this impressive family-run operation bottles some fine berry-based wines, plus fireweed mead and rhubarb vino. It conducts tours and tastings daily in the summer and sells its product on-site.
They can't grow grapes in Alaska but that doesn't mean they can't make wine. Maybe Haines isn't quite Napa Valley but you can still stop at this winery's tasting room, and sip and purchase wines made from rhubarb, strawberries, blueberries, fireweed flower or anything else they find growing outside. The most unusual is its onion wine that has a definite hint of, well, onions.
Kodiak is also home to several wineries, fermenting everything (except grapes that is) from rhubarb and salmonberries to wild rose. Kodiak Island Winery is a scenic 36 miles out of town and has tours, a gift shop and, of course, wine tasting.
