Last week, TTB announced several proposals with respect to wines in the United States. These proposals include the Yamhill-Carlton Viticultural Area; Use of Various Winemaking Terms on Wine Labels and Advertisements; Labeling Imported Wine with Multistate Appellations; and Disclosure of Cochineal Extract and Carmine in the Labeling of Wines, Distilled Spirits, and Malt Beverages. The proposals can be accessed at TTBGov Wine and comments can be posted until January 3, 2011.
