Grenache Gris and Garnacha Roja Approved as Grape Variety Names

We recently granted administrative approval for the use of the grape variety name Grenache Gris, and for the use of Garnacha Roja as a synonym for Grenache Gris, as type designations 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 any subsequent rulemaking to revise the list of approved grape variety names provided in the TTB regulations at 27 CFR 4.91.
