Greetings! We hope you are having a practical and superlative week! This edition includes information about our recent outreach at the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium and a call for applications for the spring 2013 round of the TTB Chemist Certification Program
TTB INCREASES OUTREACH TO INDUSTRY MEMBERS AND PUBLIC AT UNIFIED WINE AND GRAPE SYMPOSIUM
TTB employees participated in the Unified Wine and Grape Symposium in Sacramento, California in late January. The symposium is one of the largest of its kind in the Western Hemisphere with more than 13,000 attendees and nearly 650 vendors and exhibitors providing supplies, services, assistance, and information about the wine industry, viticulture, and enology.
TTB made a presentation on the process for adding new wine treating materials to our regulations and staffed a booth on the trade show floor. Hundreds of people visited our booth for information on all areas of our regulation of the wine industry. TTB's participation at this and other industry conferences is an important part of our efforts to foster working relationships with industry members and the public.
