American Viticultural Area Reading Room

Welcome to TTB’s American Viticultural Area (AVA) Reading Room. Here you will find links to copies of publicly available AVA documents, including AVA petitions, notices of proposed rulemaking (NPRMs), public comments, and final rules (Treasury Decisions).

From 2007 onward, AVA documents are posted to online public dockets at, so we have included links in the AVA Reading Room that will take you to those online documents.


If you are looking for an AVA document that is not available in the AVA Reading Room, you may submit a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to TTB. See Making a Perfected FOIA Request for more information.
