Six New Grape Varieties Approved For Designating American Wine

November 24, 2017

We recently granted administrative approval for the use of six new grape variety names on American wine labels.

The variety names are as follows: Sauvignon Kretos, Merlot Kanthus, Fleurtai, Sauvignon Rytos, Cabernet Volos, and Soreli.

Wine bottlers may use these names, as well as others 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 our American Grape Variety Names page at for additional information about the regulation of grape variety names.
