Date: 2015-02-09

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) establishes the approximately 3,770-acre ``The Rocks District of Milton-Freewater'' viticultural area in Umatilla County, Oregon.

Use of American Viticultural Area Names as Appellations of Origin on Wine Labels
Document Number: 2015-02552
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2015-02-09
Agency: Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, Department of Treasury, Department of the Treasury
The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) is proposing to amend its regulations to permit the use of American viticultural area names as appellations of origin on labels for wines that would otherwise qualify for the use of the AVA name, except that the wines have been fully finished in a State adjacent to the State in which the viticultural area is located, rather than the State in which the labeled viticultural area is located. The proposal would provide greater flexibility in wine production and labeling while still ensuring that consumers are provided with adequate information as to the identity of the wines they purchase. TTB permits the use of viticultural area names as appellations of origin on wine labels, so that vintners may better describe the origin of their wines and consumers may better identify the wines they may purchase.
