AGENCY: This Treasury decision renames the ‘‘Yamhill-Carlton District’’ viticultural area, located in Yamhill and Washington Counties, Oregon, as the ‘‘Yamhill-Carlton’’ viticultural area. We designate viticultural areas to allow vintners to better describe the origin of their wines and to allow consumers to better identify wines they may purchase. SUMMARY: Effective Date: December 3, 2010. N.A. Sutton, Regulations and Rulings Division, Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, 925 Lakeville St., No. 158, Petaluma, CA 94952; telephone 415–271–1254. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background on Viticultural Areas emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with RULES TTB Authority Section 105(e) of the Federal Alcohol Administration Act (FAA Act), 27 U.S.C. 205(e), authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to prescribe regulations for the labeling of wine, distilled spirits, and malt beverages. The FAA Act requires that these regulations, among other things, prohibit consumer deception and the use of misleading statements on labels, and ensure that labels provide the consumer with adequate information as to the identity and quality of the product. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) administers the regulations promulgated under the FAA Act. Part 4 of the TTB regulations (27 CFR part 4) allows the establishment of definitive viticultural areas and the use of their names as appellations of origin on wine labels and in wine advertisements. Part 9 of the TTB regulations (27 CFR part 9) contains the list of approved viticultural areas. Definition Section 4.25(e)(1)(i) of the TTB regulations (27 CFR 4.25(e)(1)(i)) defines VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:46 Nov 02, 2010 Jkt 223001 a viticultural area for American wine as a delimited grape-growing region distinguishable by geographical features, the boundaries of which have been recognized and defined in part 9 of the regulations. These designations allow vintners and consumers to attribute a given quality, reputation, or other characteristic of a wine made from grapes grown in an area to its geographical origin. The establishment of viticultural areas allows vintners to describe more accurately the origin of their wines to consumers and helps consumers to identify wines they may purchase. Establishment of a viticultural area is neither an approval nor an endorsement by TTB of the wine produced in that area. Requirements Section 4.25(e)(2) of the TTB regulations outlines the procedure for proposing an American viticultural area and provides that any interested party may petition TTB to establish a grapegrowing region as a viticultural area. Section 9.3(b) of the TTB regulations requires the petition to include— • Evidence that the proposed viticultural area is locally and/or nationally known by the name specified in the petition; • Historical or current evidence that supports setting the boundary of the proposed viticultural area as the petition specifies; • Evidence relating to the geographical features, such as climate, soils, elevation, and physical features that distinguish the proposed viticultural area from surrounding areas; • A description of the specific boundary of the proposed viticultural area, based on features found on United States Geological Survey (USGS) maps; and • A copy of the appropriate USGS map(s) with the proposed viticultural area’s boundary prominently marked. Yamhill-Carlton District Viticultural Area Background In 2002, TTB’s predecessor Agency, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, received a petition from Mr. Alex Sokol-Blosser, Secretary of the North Willamette Valley [American Viticultural Area] Group, and Mr. Ken Wright, on behalf of certain grape growers, to establish a new viticultural area called the ‘‘Yamhill-Carlton District.’’ Located in northwestern Oregon, the Yamhill-Carlton District is about 35 miles southwest of Portland, Oregon, and 25 miles from the Pacific Ocean, in Yamhill and Washington Counties, Oregon, and entirely within PO 00000 Frm 00028 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 the larger Willamette Valley viticultural area (27 CFR 9.90). On October 7, 2003, TTB published in the Federal Register (68 FR 57845) Notice No. 19, proposing the establishment of the Yamhill-Carlton District viticultural area. In response to that notice, the only comment TTB received was in support of the proposed establishment. On December 9, 2004, TTB published in the Federal Register (69 FR 71372) Treasury Decision (T.D.) TTB–20, establishing the YamhillCarlton District viticultural area (27 CFR 9.183) as proposed. T.D. TTB–20 states that the YamhillCarlton District viticultural area boundary line surrounds the towns of Yamhill and Carlton, which lie 3 miles apart, along Route 47, in Yamhill County. The ‘‘Name Evidence’’ section states that the first time the two names were used together was in the 1853 establishment of the Yamhill-Carlton Pioneer Cemetery. The cemetery is identified on the USGS Carlton Quadrangle map (published in 1957; revised in 1992). The name was used again in 1955, when the YamhillCarlton Union High School was established in the Yamhill-Carlton School District. Residents still use the ‘‘Yamhill-Carlton’’ name today. Petition To Change to the YamhillCarlton District Viticultural Area Name In 2008, Mr. Ken Wright, of Ken Wright Cellars, submitted a petition to TTB to change the name of the viticultural area from ‘‘Yamhill-Carlton District’’ to ‘‘Yamhill-Carlton.’’ In this petition, Mr. Wright asserts that when the viticultural area was originally proposed ‘‘[t]he inclusion of the word ‘District’ was completely discretionary and added only to enforce the idea of the AVA [American viticultural area] being a regionalized area.’’ Further, he states that ‘‘[h]istorically, the area has always been referred to as simply ‘Yamhill-Carlton.’ Additionally, the length of the current name is very difficult to fit on a [wine] label. Many wineries have found it impossible, given their current label graphics, to utilize the name.’’ Many others joined Mr. Wright, writing letters included with the petition, in support of renaming the Yamhill-Carlton District viticultural area as the Yamhill-Carlton viticultural area. Kathie Oriet, Mayor of the city of Carlton, Oregon, wrote: ‘‘As Mayor of the small city of Carlton, I feel the E:\FR\FM\03NOR1.SGM 03NOR1

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Trade Commission (``Commission'') is issuing 
technical corrections to the Appliance Labeling Rule (16 CFR Part 305). 
This document republishes the text of Sec.  305.20(f) concerning 
catalog requirements not published in the CFR and corrects text in 
Appendix D4 concerning labels for instantaneous water heaters.

DATES: Effective Date: July 19, 2011.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hampton Newsome, Attorney, Division of 
Enforcement, Bureau of Consumer Protection, Federal Trade Commission, 
Washington, DC 20580 (202-326-2889).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission is republishing Sec.  
305.20(f) of the Appliance Labeling Rule (16 CFR Part 305) which 
appeared in the Federal Register on October 23, 2008 (73 FR 63066, 
63068), but was inadvertently not printed in the Code of Federal 
Regulations. In addition, the Commission is correcting text in Appendix 
D4 to the change the phrase ``First Hour Rating'' to ``Capacity 
(maximum flow rate); gallons per minute (gpm).'' \1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The Commission last amended Appendix D4 (comparability 
ranges for instantaneous gas water heaters) on August 29, 2007 (72 
FR 49948). The correct capacity descriptor for instantaneous water 
heaters is maximum flow rate measured in gallons per minute, not 
``first hour rating'' as the current Rule indicates.
