Proposed Establishment of the Candy Mountain Viticultural Area and Modification of the Yakima Valley Viticultural Area
The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) proposes to establish the 815-acre ``Candy Mountain'' viticultural area in Benton County, Washington. TTB also proposes to expand the boundary of the existing 1,093-acre Yakima Valley viticultural area by approximately 72 acres in order to avoid a partial overlap with the proposed Candy Mountain viticultural area. Both the existing Yakima Valley AVA and the proposed Candy Mountain AVA are located entirely within the existing Columbia Valley AVA. 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 these proposals.
Elimination of Certain Standards of Fill for Wine; and Elimination of Certain Standards of Fill for Distilled Spirits; Amendment of Malt Beverage Net Contents Labeling Regulation
The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) is extending for an additional 60 days the comment periods for the two notices of proposed rulemaking it published on July 1, 2019, entitled, ``Elimination of Certain Standards of Fill for Wine'' and ``Elimination of Certain Standards of Fill for Distilled Spirits; Amendment of Malt Beverage Net Contents Labeling Regulation.'' TTB is taking this action in response to requests to extend the comment periods for those proposed rulemakings made by several interested parties.
