TREAS/TTB RIN: 1513-AC55 Publication ID: Fall 2019 
Title: ●Proposed Modification of the Boundaries of the Santa Lucia Highlands and Arroyo Seco Viticultural Areas 
Abstract:

In response to a petition for rulemaking submitted on behalf of industry members, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau proposes to modify the boundaries of the Santa Lucia Highlands American viticultural area (AVA) and the adjacent Arroyo Seco AVA.  The proposed boundary modifications would reduce the size of the Santa Lucia Highlands AVA  by approximately 228 acres and reduce the size of the Arroyo Seco AVA by approximately 148 acres.  The use of AVA names on wine labels, which is voluntary, allows vintners to better describe the origin of their wines and consumers to better identify the wines they may purchase.
