The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau reopens the comment period for Notice No. 960, a notice of proposed rulemaking published in the Federal Register to add ``Red Hill (Oregon)'' as an approved American viticultural area. We are re-opening the comment period for 30 days to solicit comments on a new proposed name, ``Red Hill Douglas County, Oregon.'' The petitioner suggested the new name because the originally proposed name could be confused with similar names of other geographical areas and with brand names used on wines from those other areas.
