TREAS/TTB RIN: 1513-AC29 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Proposal to Remove a Prohibition Against Labeling of Wines to Indicate Added Distilled Spirits 

The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau proposes to amend its wine labeling and advertising regulations at 27 CFR 4.39 to remove a specific prohibition against statements which indicate that a wine contains distilled spirits. This proposed deregulatory action, in response to a petition from an industry association, will allow wine makers to provide additional information to consumers about certain wines, while still providing consumers with adequate and non-misleading information as to the identity and quality of the products they purchase.
