Last week featured three important proposals that would impact the American wine industry in a substantial way. The Senate Finance Committee passed three tax proposals related to federal alcohol excise taxes. A cider bill would increase the alcohol and carbonation levels for hard cider. The TTB introduced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPR) changing how an American Viticultural Area (AVA) can be used on a wine label.
WineAmerica is monitoring all of these proposals. Over the next several weeks we will be meeting with members of Congress to insure that any new legislation benefits the American wine industry.
The Senate Finance Committee passed a bill making it easier for small wineries to file their federal excise taxes and a bill lowering excise taxes on small breweries.
Small BREW Act Amendment
Seeks to reduce the small brewer rate on the first 60,000 barrels.
Cider bill would increase the alcohol and carbonation levels for hard cider.
TTB Proposes Major Change to AVA Labeling
New proposed TTB rule would open up the regulations for the use of American Viticultural Areas.
