TREAS/TTB RIN: 1513-AC44 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: Proposal to Allow for the Use of Molasses and Grain in Wine 

In response to petitions from winemakers, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau intends to propose to amend its wine regulations to remove a prohibition on the use of grain, cereal, malt, or molasses as ingredients in wine.  The proposed amendment would allow the use of these ingredients as adjuncts in wine, which must be derived primarily from grapes, other fruit, or other suitable agricultural products.  This proposed deregulatory action will provide winemakers with greater flexibility and allow them to offer consumers a wider range of products.
