IN THIS ISSUE

Greetings! We hope you had a splendid and radiant week! This week's top stories include an announcement about two new grape varieties approved for use on American wine labels, TTB information collections, and a list of the past week's top wine pages at TTB.gov.

MUSTANG AND RIVERBANK GRAPE VARIETIES APPROVED FOR DESIGNATING AMERICAN WINE

We recently granted administrative approval for the use of the Mustang and Riverbank grape variety names on American wine labels.  Wine bottlers may use these names, as well as others granted administrative approval, to label American wines pending the results of our next rulemaking to revise the list found in 27 CFR 4.91 of grape variety names approved for use in designating American wines.

Visit our American Grape Variety Names page at TTB.gov for additional information about the regulation of grape variety names.
