Wine labels from the United States are relatively straightforward and easy to understand, but there are strict laws governing what they must and must not show. The typical label shows the wine's producer, vintage, region of origin (e.g.?Willamette Valley) and grape variety (e.g.?Pinot Noir). Below is an example of an American wine label, and below that an overview of US wine classifications and labeling laws. For comprehensive information on the United States wine regions and their wines, see?USA.
American wine labeling laws are managed by the TTB (Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau), the government bureau principally responsible for setting and monitoring alcohol-related taxes. By law, bottles of United States wine must be marked with a brand name, wine type, alcohol content, bottle volume, sulfite content, and the producer's name and address.
