New Grape Variety Names Approved
Posted 03/12/2021 by the Office of Communications
We recently granted administrative approval for the use of the grape varieties Pecorino and Verdiccio as a type designation on American wine labels.
Wine bottlers may use these names, as well as other names granted administrative approval, to label American wines pending the results of our next rulemaking to revise the list found in 27 CFR 4.91 of grape variety names approved for use in designating American wines.
Visit Grape Variety Designations on American Wine Labels at TTB.gov for additional information about the regulation of grape variety names.
