IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! This week’s top news includes that we’re proposing a new AVA called “Candy Mountain,” and an Oregon wine company served a one-day permit suspension for trade practice violations.

"CANDY MOUNTAIN" AVA PROPOSED

We are accepting comments through October 18, 2019, on Notice No. 184, Proposed Establishment of the Candy Mountain Viticultural Area and Modification of the Yakima Valley Viticultural Area, which was published in the Federal Register on Monday, August 19, 2019.

The 815-acre proposed “Candy Mountain” American Viticultural Area is located in Benton County, Washington.  We are also proposing a 72-acre expansion of the existing Yakima Valley viticultural area in order to avoid creating a partial overlap with the proposed viticultural area.  The proposed Candy Mountain viticultural area and the Yakima Valley viticultural area are both located within the established Columbia Valley viticultural area.

You may view copies of the proposed rule and submit comments electronically on the Regulations.gov website.

Read the press release.

Portland, Oregon company RCL Wine Affiliates, LLC (dba Fat Barrel Wine Company), served a one-day permit suspension on August 9, 2019, for engaging in unlawful consignment sales.
