Henry Winery First to Label Wines with
New "100 percent Napa Valley" Certification Mark
Henry Winery made history on May 14, 2003, when it became the first
winery to bottle and release wines incorporating the "100 percent
Napa Valley" Certification Mark on its wine labels. The front
labels of Dutch Henry's 2001 Napa Valley Northfork Cabernet Sauvignon,
2001 Napa Valley Merlot and 2001 Napa Valley Argos Meritage include
the 100 percent Napa Valley Certification Mark, which indicates
that 100 percent of the grapes used to produce that wine were grown
in Napa Valley and that 100 percent of the winemaking - from the
crushing of grapes to the bottling of wine - occurred in Napa Valley.
of the 100 percent Napa Valley Certification Mark on wine labels
is a fundamental component of the newly established 100 percent
Napa Valley Certification Program administered by the Napa Valley
Vintners Association to preserve the integrity of the Napa Valley
appellation and eliminate confusion in the wine marketplace.
Henry Winery is small winery owned and operated by the Chafen family,
which has grown grapes in Napa Valley for 20 years. With an annual
production of approximately 4,800 cases, Dutch Henry specializes
in limited lots of ultra-premium wines, including Estate Cabernet
Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Meritage, Merlot, Zinfandel, Syrah and
Chardonnay. For more information, visit www.dutchhenry.com.
