SALEM, Ore. - Pinot noir is one of the finickiest grapes, but with proper nurturing it produces an amazing wine.

Both the U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and Oregon’s liquor agency have ruled that a Napa Valley winery’s labels have been improperly referencing official Oregon wine regions.
