This combination of decal and label was used until 1969.
In 1969, the gold label was replaced by a smaller interior label with a white background and the same trademark red and black lettering.
In North America, native grapes belonging to various species of the Vitis genus proliferate in the wild across the continent, and were a part of the diet of many Native Americans, but were considered by European colonists to be unsuitable for wine.
Vitis vinifera cultivars were imported for that purpose.
A grape is a fruit, botanically a berry, of the deciduous woody vines of the flowering plant genus Vitis.
