TTB issued a press release today announcing it will publish a notice of proposed rulemaking in the Federal Register on Friday, April 5, 2013, proposing two new viticultural areas in Lake County, California. TTB is making this proposal in response to petitions filed on behalf of local vintners and grape growers.

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.

To learn more about this proposed rule, read the press release (TTB Press Release FY-13-07): TTB Proposes Establishment of Two New Viticultural Areas in Lake County, California.
