American Appellation System
The before  American appellation system was depended on the political boundaries of states and counties. In September 1978 the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (nowAlcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau) created rules to set up American Viticulture Areas (AVA) based on diverse weather and environmental attributes. In June 1980, the Augusta AVA in Missouri was marked as the first American Viticulture Area under the new appellation framework. For the sake of wine labeling purposes, all the states and county appellations were labeled in as appellations. There were 187 distinct AVAs designated under U.S. law as of April 2007.
