Napa Valley Wine Protected

5th January 2016

Napa Valley Vintners is the first wine group in the US to receive certification mark registration.

To protect the integrity of the Napa Valley name and prevent consumer deception, Napa Valley Vintners obtained a certification mark for the name “Napa Valley” from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The mark applies only to products that are alcohol or beverage related.

The designation will help the trade association to further protect consumers around the world from deceptive wine labeling practices.

In addition to obtaining this Certification Mark, the NVV has gained name protection status for the Napa Valley in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the European Union, India, Israel, New Zealand, Norway, Taiwan, Thailand and Turkey. The new U.S. designation will allow the NVV to negotiate with additional countries and further its goal of protecting consumers worldwide.

Napa Valley is home to great sparkling wines including: Domaine Carneros, Domaine Chandon, Mumm Napa and Schramsberg.
