Washington, D.C. - The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) announces a series of one-day seminars on federal regulations and compliance training specifically for new Northern California wine premises (qualified since Jan.1, 2003). The seminars will be held June 15-17 (9: 00 A.M. to 4:30 P. M.) Each session will cover recordkeeping and reports, changes after qualification, taxes, labeling and exports.

Sessions are scheduled as follows:

Priority registration will be accepted from these new wineries through May 21. After that date, registration will be accepted from other wine premises on a space available basis.
