TREAS/TTB RIN: 1513-AB56 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Standards of Fill for Wine and Distilled Spirits 
Abstract:

TTB is considering amending the regulations prescribing standards of fill for wine and distilled spirits. Although this issue was addressed previously in 1987 and 1993, TTB believes that recent trends in consumer preferences and marketing strategies, along with petitions recently received from industry members, warrants revisiting this issue. TTB is soliciting comments on whether the existing standards of fill for wine and distilled spirits containers should be retained, revised, or eliminated.
