The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) proposes to establish the approximately 17,663-acre ``Moon Mountain District Sonoma County'' viticultural area in Sonoma County, California. The proposed viticultural area lies completely within the established Sonoma Valley viticultural area which, in turn, is within the multi-county North Coast viticultural area. TTB designates viticultural areas to allow vintners to better describe the origin of their wines and to allow consumers to better identify wines they may purchase. TTB invites comments on this proposed addition to its regulations.
