TREAS/TTB RIN: 1513-AB56 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Standards of Fill for Wine 

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) is addressing petitions requesting that TTB amend the regulations that govern wine containers to provide for additional authorized standards of fill.  TTB is proposing to eliminate all but a minimum standard of fill for wine containers in order to provide industry members greater flexibility in production and sourcing containers, and provide consumers broader purchasing options.  This deregulatory action would also eliminate restrictions that inhibit competition and the movement of goods in domestic and international commerce.
