If your talking about the "Academy of Vocal Arts" I will have to check with Troy.

If your talking about "American Viticultural Areas" counting them up from coast to coast and border to border I come up with 198.

OOPS!!!! I guess I type faster than I can think. The answer is 198 so I guess my final answer is C 198. I wished I was sampling a little wine when I answered but that was just before I went to work. That's okay though I'm going home here shortly so I'll have to start sampling right away.

Ok, I looked it up and it is kinda what I thought. Since it comes under the umbrella of the TTB, are there some kind of regulatory controls in these areas that would, say, supercede state laws? Or is it a designation to let someone know what kind of grapes might be expected to grow in that area?
I see we have only 7 VA's in Canada, in southern BC and Ontario.
I'd not heard or seen the designation before so just curious.

Thanks, Tom, I think I get it now - if a wine is produced and is labeled as being from a certain AVA, then minimum 85% of the grapes used in that wine must come from that AVA, so it's a way to advertise and market but with some controls.
