Wine Labels

Most wines need a Certificate of Label Approval (COLA) from TTB prior to being sold in the marketplace. In the section below, we offer information on what must, can, and should not be on wine labels and provide examples that will help you to create an approvable label.

After you have read the information below and created your wine label, you can then submit a COLA application through COLAS Online. If you are changing an existing label, make sure to check if the change is allowable—you may not need to apply for a new COLA!
