Courts to decide what means
In 2000, California passed a "Napa name" law, which declared that a wine using the name "Napa" must contain at least 75 percent Napa County-grown grapes. The law was soon challenged in court by ; it has not yet been enacted.
The California Court of Appeal initially ruled in favor of Bronco,
, which owns Napa Ridge and Napa Creek wine brands, both of which make wines from grapes outside Napa County. The overturned the decision. Supreme Court to take the case. Supreme Court last week supporting the law.
Bronco, the company behind wines ("Two Buck Chuck"), argues that federal regulation of interstate commerce supersedes California's state law.
Some 62 wineries from 18 states have sided with Bronco by signing a "friend of the court" brief. They say their ability to sell wines under geographic brand names that have been used for decades may be directly affected by the case.
Bronco acquired at least three disputed brand names from other wineries. Napa Ridge was acquired in January 2000 from Beringer (now ) for more than $40 million. Napa Creek,
, introduced in 1981, was acquired by Bronco in 1993. The Rutherford Vintners brand originated in the early 1970s and was acquired by Bronco in 1994.
Under Bronco's ownership, these brands have been used exclusively to sell wines made from grapes grown outside Napa County. Bronco has built a large winemaking facility in Napa Valley and can thus use other words on the label that some could construe as misleading,

, such as "cellared and bottled in Napa Valley," though the grapes are trucked in from elsewhere.
Napa Valley Vintners lobbied for the California law to close a loophole created by a 1986 federal wine-labeling regulation. That law banned the use of a label that implies the wine was made from grapes grown in the area suggested by the brand unless at least 75 percent of the grapes were grown in that area. However, a "grandfather clause" exempted brand names in use prior to July 7,
