TTB Amends Wine Label Regs

Published: 08/06/2013

WASHINGTON — The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau last month announced it is amending its regulations regarding the mandatory labeling requirements for wine.

The regulatory change permits alcohol content to appear on other labels affixed to the container rather than requiring it to appear on the brand label. The change provides greater flexibility in wine labeling, and will conform the TTB wine labeling regulations to the 2007 agreement reached by members of the World Wine Trade Group regarding the presentation of certain information on wine labels.
