TTB Label Approval Assistance

WineAmerica assists wineries through the label and formula approval process.

We know the TTB label processes are arduous. WineAmerica can provide assistance with label approvals and general regulatory questions relevant to the wine industry.

The following services are offered:

  • Answers to regulatory and technical questions
  • Label review prior to online submission to the TTB
  • Submission of paper applications (WineAmerica strongly suggests using COLA’s Online for COLA submittal)
  • Assistance with COLA’s Online signup.
  • Paper Submittal Process

When labels arrive, they are checked for technical mistakes and possible problems before being relayed to the TTB within 24 hours.
If approved, the TTB will email you directly with an electronic copy of your approved COLA. Paper copies are no longer supplied by the TTB after the label has been reviewed.

If your COLA application was rejected the TTB will email you with a copy of the rejected COLA and what needs to be changed.

Please see the attached PDF for more details.
