The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) issued a press release today announcing the establishment of a new viticultural area in Indiana. On February 5, 2013, TTB will publish a final rule in the Federal Register establishing the 4,800-square mile "Indiana Uplands" American viticultural area in all or portions of 19 counties in south-central Indiana.
In addition, this final rule modifies the boundary of the existing 26,000-square mile "Ohio River Valley" viticultural area to eliminate any overlap with the "Indiana Uplands" viticultural area.
This final rule is effective on March 7, 2013. Beginning February 5, 2013, you may view the rulemaking record for this final rule on the "Regulations.gov" website within Docket No. TTB-2012-0004. Copies of the relevant regulatory documents and a link to the Regulatons.gov docket also may be found on the TTB website.
