Oregon

Oregon is by far the strictest in terms of label regulation; however this does allow the consumer to understand exactly what the wine is.

Varietal: For a specific varietal to be on the label, 95% of that varietal must be present. The exception is with Cabernet Sauvignon, which only has to be 75%.
 
Vintage: For a vintage to be on the bottle, 95% of the juice has to be from that specific vintage.
 
AVA: If a specific AVA is on the bottle, then 85% of the grapes have to have come from that AVA. (ex: Willameete Valley)
 
Individual Vineyard: If an individual vineyard is labeled, 85% of the grapes have top be from that vineyard.

Generic Names: There are no generic names allowed on Oregon wines, such as Chablis, Burgundy, or Bordeaux Style)
