It is said that as early as 1564 wine was made from the native grape in Florida. The first attempts to establish a regular vineyard were made in Virginia, in 1620 with European vines. All efforts to introduce the Old World vines proved futile in the regions to the east of the Rocky Mountains. Towards the end of the 18th century the Mission Fathers succeeded in planting vineyards in California. The vines used were mainly of two sorts, the one yielding a white grape with a musky flavor, and the other a dark blue fruit.

American Viticultural Areas (AVA)

The United States uses "American Viticultural Areas"

A viticulture area is a delimited grape-growing region distinguishable by geographical features, the boundaries of which have been recognized by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) and defined in 27 CFR Part 9. AVA's do not set standards or control the quality of the wine produced within a certain AVA. They identify an area the grapes are grown in.
