California Wine Regions

California's AVA's

Wine with "California" on the label must contain 100% California grapes.  A county designation requires 
that at least 75% of the grapes must be from that county.  A wine with an AVA designation- 
such as Stags Leap- must contain 85% of the grapes from that AVA. A Vineyard designated wine 
must contain 95% of its grapes from that vineyard. Vineyard names must be used  along with 
County or AVA names. California also has a law that requires "Napa Valley" to appear on labels in 
conjunction with any sub-viticultural area within Napa, 
i.e. a label with the designation "Rutherford" must also have "Napa Valley".
