SB 771 (Thompson, Chapter 588, Statutes of 1989) required wines produced within the "Napa Valley" to be labeled as being derived from that valley, if the wine label indicates that they are produced within a separate viticultural area within the Napa Valley, in order to preserve consumer identification and understanding. This requirement applied to all wines bottled on or after January 1, 1990.
