Certification Requirements for Imported Wine

Section 2002 of the Miscellaneous Trade and Technical Corrections Act of 2004 amended section 5382(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, which sets forth standards regarding what constitutes proper cellar treatment of natural wine. The Act added new certification requirements regarding production practices and procedures for imported natural wine. Effective May 28, 2008, TTB adopted a final rule implementing the certification requirements regarding production practices and procedures for imported natural wine.
