Proposed Establishment of the Candy Mountain Viticultural Area and Modification of the Yakima Valley Viticultural Area
Document Number: 2019-17688
Type: Proposed Rule

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.
