ANCHORAGE, Alaska — For Bill and Dorothy Fry, winemaking is more than just an obsession: what started as a hobby in garage has fermented into a successful business.
The couple owns and operates Bear Creek Winery and Lodging in Homer, which combines luxurious lodging with an extensive winemaking operation.
The winery serves virtually every berry and grape-based fermented concoction imaginable, each with an Alaska twist. Examples include black raspberry, gooseberry and Blu Zin (a mix of blueberries and White Zinfandel).
