TTB Adds to Approved Winemaking Materials, Processes

Alcohol & Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau added to its list of approved materials and processes for making wine.  The new rule, published in the Federal Register also expanded the use of some materials already authorized under the regulations.  

Some of the wine-treating materials and processes had already been approved administratively for use in the U.S.  TTB explained that "Adding these wine treating materials and processes to the TTB regulations will increase the acceptability in export markets of wine produced using these materials and processes."

The full 25-page final rule can be found in Monday's Federal Register starting on page 51880.
