Since we are not commercial wineries the rules do not apply. Though in the commercial market in order to call a wine by it's varietal name it has to be 75% of the varietal, as least in Virginia. So for us the magic numbers are whatever tastes the best and we can call it anything we want.Newbie question..... Is there a "magic number" for a % of the blend? Should it be at least 25%? I see some of the comments that looks like they may be 25/25/50 or variations... I like blending my blackberry wine with grape wines... and, as every one says, seems to make it better than either one individually. Just not sure if 10% is enough to get the flavor or if it needs to be more like 25%. Just wanting some input from the "pros".
