ESTABLISHMENT OF DAHLONEGA PLATEAU AMERICAN VITICULTURAL AREA

On Friday, June 29, 2018, we published T.D. TTB –151 in the Federal Register to establish the 133 square-mile "Dahlonega Plateau" American viticultural area in portions of Lumpkin and White Counties in northern Georgia, effective on July 30, 2018. The Dahlonega Plateau viticultural area is not located within any other established viticultural area.

TTB issued this regulation in response to a petition submitted by the Dahlonega–Lumpkin Chamber & Visitors Bureau on behalf of local vineyard owners and vintners. We designate viticultural areas to allow vintners to better describe the origin of their wines and to allow consumers to better identify wines they may purchase.

See Docket No. TTB–2016–0012 at Regulations.gov for all documents and public comments related to this rulemaking.
