Continuing their Mendocino family's winemaking tradition is so important to Jacob and Benjamin Fetzer they added the words "third generation" to their Masut wine label and their business cards.
Chenin Blanc Their grandfather Barney Fetzer was one of Mendocino County's trailblazing vintners and the two brothers grew up on the Fetzer family's Redwood Valley "home" ranch. Now Jake, 29, and Ben, 30, make wine from the grapes they helped their late dad Bobby Fetzer plant when they were in high school.

Virginia's wine industry contributes almost $350 million to the state's economy each year. Last spring, Albemarle County changed some of its ordinances and restrictions to make it easier for wineries to reach more customers and sell their products.
Cabernet Shiraz "We have steadily grown. In the beginning just starting at about 500 cases to last year with the 2010 vintage producing just upwards of 5,000 cases," Hannon said.
Rosé Today there are 327 acres of vineyard. Next year, five more acres will be added. Attracting customers from near and far is part of what contributes to the King Family Vineyards' success.
