TREAS/TTB RIN: 1513-AC73 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Establishment of the Upper Lake Valley Viticultural Area and Modification of the Clear Lake Viticultural Area 
Abstract:

In response to a petition for rulemaking submitted on behalf of industry members, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau proposed to establish the 168,960-acre Upper Lake Valley American viticultural area (AVA) in Lake County, California. The proposal would also expand the boundary of the existing 1,093-square mile Clear Lake AVA in order to avoid a partial overlap with the proposed AVA. The use of AVA names on wine labels, which is voluntary, allows vintners to better describe the origin of their wine and consumers to better identify the wines they may purchase.
