RIN 1513-AB99


Establishment of the Big Valley District-Lake County and Kelsey 
Bench-Lake County Viticultural Areas and Modification of the Red Hills 
Lake County Viticultural Area

AGENCY: Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, Treasury.

ACTION: Final rule; Treasury Decision.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) establishes 
the approximately 11,000-acre ``Big Valley District-Lake County'' 
viticultural area and the approximately 9,100-acre ``Kelsey Bench-Lake 
County'' viticultural area, both in Lake County, California. 
Additionally, TTB modifies the boundary of the established 31,250-acre 
Red Hills Lake County viticultural area in order to align a portion of 
its border with that of the proposed Kelsey Bench-Lake County 
viticultural area. The proposed viticultural areas and the established 
viticultural area lie entirely within the larger Clear Lake 
viticultural area and the multicounty North Coast viticultural area. 
TTB designates viticultural areas to allow vintners to better describe 
the origin of their wines and to allow consumers to better identify 
wines they may purchase.

DATES: This final rule is effective November 1, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background on Viticultural Areas

TTB Authority

    Section 105(e) of the Federal Alcohol Administration Act (FAA Act), 
27 U.S.C. 205(e), authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to prescribe 
regulations for the labeling of wine, distilled spirits, and malt 
beverages. The FAA Act provides that these regulations should, among 
other things, prohibit consumer deception and the use of misleading 
statements on labels, and ensure that labels provide the consumer with 
adequate information as to the identity and quality of the product. The 
Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) administers the FAA Act 
pursuant to section 1111(d) of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, 
codified at 6 U.S.C. 531(d). The Secretary has delegated various 
authorities through Treasury Department Order 120-01 (Revised), dated 
January 21, 2003, to the TTB Administrator to perform the functions and 
duties in the administration and enforcement of this law.
    Part 4 of the TTB regulations (27 CFR part 4) allows the 
establishment of definitive viticultural areas and the use of their 
names as appellations of origin on wine labels and in wine 
advertisements. Part 9 of the TTB regulations (27 CFR part 9) sets 
forth standards for the preparation and submission of petitions for the 
establishment or modification of American viticultural areas and lists 
the approved American viticultural areas.

Definition

    Section 4.25(e)(1)(i) of the TTB regulations (27 CFR 4.25(e)(1)(i)) 
defines a viticultural area for American wine as a delimited grape-
growing region having distinguishing features as described in part 9 of 
the regulations and a name and a delineated boundary as established in 
part 9 of the regulations. These designations allow vintners and 
consumers to attribute a given quality, reputation, or other 
characteristic of a wine made from grapes grown in an area to its 
geographic origin. The establishment of viticultural areas allows 
vintners to describe more accurately the origin of their wines to 
consumers and helps consumers to identify wines they may purchase. 
Establishment of a viticultural area is neither an approval nor an 
endorsement by TTB of the wine produced in that area.

Requirements

    Section 4.25(e)(2) of the TTB regulations outlines the procedure 
for proposing an American viticultural area

[[Page 60687]]

and provides that any interested party may petition TTB to establish a 
grape-growing region as a viticultural area. Section 9.12 of the TTB 
regulations (27 CFR 9.12) prescribes standards for petitions for the 
establishment of American viticultural areas. Petitions to establish a 
viticultural area must include the following:
     Evidence that the area within the proposed viticultural 
area boundary is nationally or locally known by the viticultural area 
name specified in the petition;
     An explanation of the basis for defining the boundary of 
the proposed viticultural area;
     A narrative description of the features of the proposed 
viticultural area that affect viticulture, such as climate, geology, 
soils, physical features, and elevation, that make the proposed 
viticultural area distinctive and distinguish it from adjacent areas 
outside the proposed viticultural area boundary;
     A copy of the appropriate United States Geological Survey 
(USGS) map(s) showing the location of the proposed viticultural area, 
with the boundary of the proposed viticultural area clearly drawn 
thereon; and
     A detailed narrative description of the proposed 
viticultural area boundary based on USGS map markings.

Big Valley District-Lake County and Kelsey Bench-Lake County Petitions

    TTB received two petitions from Terry Dereniuck on behalf of the 
Big Valley District and Kelsey Bench Growers Committee proposing the 
establishment of the ``Big Valley District-Lake County'' and ``Kelsey 
Bench-Lake County'' American viticultural areas within Lake County, 
California. The proposed Big Valley District-Lake County viticultural 
area has 6 bonded wineries and 43 vineyards containing approximately 
1,800 acres of wine grapes. The proposed Kelsey Bench-Lake County 
viticultural area has 1 bonded winery and 27 vineyards containing 
approximately 900 acres of wine grapes. Because the two petitions were 
submitted simultaneously and the two proposed viticultural areas share 
a common boundary, TTB is combining both proposals into a single 
rulemaking document.
    The proposed Big Valley District-Lake County and Kelsey Bench-Lake 
County viticultural areas are located in central Lake County, 
California. The two proposed viticultural areas are bordered by Mount 
Konocti and the Red Hills to the east and by the Mayacmas Mountains to 
the west and south. The two proposed viticultural areas lie entirely 
within the existing Clear Lake viticultural area (27 CFR 9.99) which, 
in turn, lies within the multicounty North Coast viticultural area (27 
CFR 9.30).
    The proposed Big Valley District-Lake County viticultural area is 
located on the southern shore of Clear Lake. The proposed Kelsey Bench-
Lake County viticultural area is adjacent to the southern boundary of 
the proposed Big Valley District-Lake County viticultural area. TTB 
notes that this shared proposed boundary line splits two vineyards 
between the two proposed viticultural areas. However, the petition 
included letters from both vineyard owners stating their understanding 
of the split and their support for the establishment of both of the 
proposed viticultural areas. The letters were included in the 
rulemaking docket.
    The petitioner also requested a modification of a small portion of 
the western boundary of the established ``Red Hills Lake County'' 
viticultural area (27 CFR 9.169), to align it with the eastern boundary 
of the proposed Kelsey Bench-Lake County viticultural area using 
features identifiable on the newest version of the Kelseyville USGS 
quadrangle map. The proposed modification would increase the size of 
the Red Hills Lake County viticultural area by approximately 7 acres. 
Before the comment period opened, the petitioner provided, as an 
addendum to the petition, letters from a representative of the Red 
Hills Lake County growers committee and a vineyard owner whose property 
is within the Red Hills Lake County viticultural area and near the 
region of the proposed boundary modification. Both letters supported 
the proposed boundary modification and were included in the rulemaking 
docket.

Notice of Proposed Rulemaking and Comments Received

    TTB published Notice No. 134 in the Federal Register on April 5, 
2013 (78 FR 20544), proposing to establish the Big Valley District-Lake 
County and Kelsey Bench-Lake County viticultural areas and to modify 
the boundary of the established Red Hills Lake County viticultural 
area. In the notice, TTB summarized the evidence from the petition 
regarding the name, boundary, and distinguishing features for the 
proposed viticultural areas. The distinguishing features of the 
proposed viticultural areas include geology, soils, climate, and 
topography. The notice also compared the distinguishing features of the 
proposed viticultural areas to the surrounding areas. For a description 
of the evidence relating to the name, boundary, and distinguishing 
features of the proposed viticultural areas and a comparison of the 
distinguishing features of the proposed viticultural areas to the 
surrounding areas, see Notice No. 134.
    In Notice No. 134, TTB solicited comments on the accuracy of the 
name, boundary, climatic, and other required information submitted in 
support of the petitions. In addition, given the proposed viticultural 
areas' locations within the existing Clear Lake and North Coast 
viticultural areas, TTB solicited comments on whether the evidence 
submitted in the petitions regarding the distinguishing features of the 
proposed viticultural areas sufficiently differentiates the proposed 
viticultural areas from the two existing viticultural areas. TTB also 
asked for comments on whether the geographical features of the proposed 
viticultural areas are so distinguishable from the surrounding Clear 
Lake or North Coast viticultural areas that the proposed Big Valley 
District-Lake County and Kelsey Bench-Lake County viticultural areas 
should no longer be part of the two existing viticultural areas. 
Finally, TTB asked for comments on whether the boundary of the 
established Red Hills Lake County viticultural area should be modified 
to align with the proposed Kelsey Bench-Lake County viticultural area 
boundary using features identifiable on the latest version of the 
Kelseyville USGS map quadrangle. The comment period closed on June 4, 
2013. TTB received no comments in response to Notice No. 134.

TTB Determination

    After careful review of the petition and the letters submitted with 
the petition in support of the two proposed AVAs, TTB finds that the 
evidence provided by the petitioner supports the establishment of the 
approximately 11,000-acre Big Valley District-Lake County viticultural 
area and the 9,100-acre Kelsey Bench-Lake County viticultural area. 
Accordingly, under the authority of the FAA Act, section 1111(d) of the 
Homeland Security Act of 2002, and part 4 of the TTB regulations, TTB 
establishes the ``Big Valley District-Lake County'' viticultural area 
and the ``Kelsey Bench-Lake County'' viticultural area in Lake County, 
California, effective 30 days from the publication date of this 
document. TTB also determines that the land within the Big Valley 
District-Lake County viticultural area and the Kelsey Bench-Lake County 
viticultural area will remain part of both the Clear Lake and North 
Coast viticultural areas. Finally, TTB determines that the boundary of

[[Page 60688]]

the Red Hills Lake County viticultural area will be modified as 
proposed.

Boundary Description

    See the narrative boundary description of the viticultural areas in 
the regulatory text published at the end of this final rule.

Maps

    The petitioner provided the required maps, and they are listed 
below in the regulatory text.

Impact on Current Wine Labels

    Part 4 of the TTB regulations prohibits any label reference on a 
wine that indicates or implies an origin other than the wine's true 
place of origin. With the establishment of these two viticultural 
areas, their names, ``Big Valley District-Lake County'' and ``Kelsey 
Bench-Lake County,'' will be recognized as names of viticultural 
significance under 27 CFR 4.39(i)(3). TTB has also determined that the 
terms ``Kelsey Bench'' and ``Kelseyville Bench'' both have viticultural 
significance in relation to the Kelsey Bench-Lake County viticultural 
area. The text of the regulation clarifies these points. Once this 
final rule becomes effective, wine bottlers using the names ``Big 
Valley District-Lake County,'' ``Kelsey Bench-Lake County,'' ``Kelsey 
Bench,'' or ``Kelseyville Bench'' in a brand name, including a 
trademark, or in another label reference as to the origin of the wine, 
will have to ensure that the product is eligible to use the 
viticultural area name as an appellation of origin.
    The establishment of the Big Valley District-Lake County 
viticultural area and the Kelsey Bench-Lake County viticultural area 
will not affect any existing viticultural area, and any bottlers using 
``Clear Lake'' or ``North Coast'' as an appellation of origin or in a 
brand name for wines made from grapes grown within the Clear Lake or 
North Coast viticultural areas will not be affected by the 
establishment of these new viticultural areas. The establishment of the 
Big Valley District-Lake County viticultural area will allow vintners 
to use ``Big Valley District-Lake County,'' ``Clear Lake,'' and ``North 
Coast'' as appellations of origin for wines made from grapes grown 
within the Big Valley District-Lake County viticultural area if the 
wines meet the eligibility requirements for the appellation. 
Additionally, the establishment of the Kelsey Bench-Lake County 
viticultural area will allow vintners to use ``Kelsey Bench-Lake 
County,'' ``Clear Lake,'' and ``North Coast'' as appellations of origin 
for wines made from grapes grown within the Kelsey Bench-Lake County 
viticultural area.
    For a wine to be labeled with a viticultural area name or other 
term identified as being viticulturally significant in part 9 of the 
TTB regulations or with a brand name that includes a viticultural area 
name or other viticulturally significant term, at least 85 percent of 
the wine must be derived from grapes grown within the area represented 
by that name or term, and the wine must meet the other conditions 
listed in 27 CFR 4.25(e)(3). If the wine is not eligible for labeling 
with a viticultural area name or other viticulturally significant term 
and that name or term appears in the brand name, then the label is not 
in compliance and the bottler must change the brand name and obtain 
approval of a new label. Similarly, if the viticultural area name or 
other viticulturally significant term appears in another reference on 
the label in a misleading manner, the bottler would have to obtain 
approval of a new label.
    Different rules apply if a wine has a brand name containing a 
viticultural area name or other term of viticultural significance that 
was used as a brand name on a label approved before July 7, 1986. See 
27 CFR 4.39(i)(2) for details.

Regulatory Flexibility Act

    TTB certifies that this regulation will not have a significant 
economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The 
regulation imposes no new reporting, recordkeeping, or other 
administrative requirement. Any benefit derived from the use of a 
viticultural area name would be the result of a proprietor's efforts 
and consumer acceptance of wines from that area. Therefore, no 
regulatory flexibility analysis is required.

Executive Order 12866

    This rule is not a significant regulatory action as defined by 
Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993. Therefore, no regulatory 
assessment is required.
