Subpart A—General Provisions

§12.1   Scope.

The regulations in this part relate to foreign names of geographic significance used in the designation of wines which are recognized as nongeneric under 27 CFR 4.24, and include those nongeneric names which the Administrator has found to be distinctive designations of wine, as defined in §4.24(c)(1) of this chapter.

This part applies to the several States of the United States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.

§12.3   Procedure for recognition of foreign distinctive designations.

(b) Format. A petition shall be in the form of a letterhead application requesting that TTB recognize the distinctive wine designation listed in their petition. The petition should present evidence to support a finding that the geographic designation is known to the U.S. consumer and trade as the designation of a specific wine of a particular place or region, distinguishable from all other wines. All background material and supporting data submitted will be made part of the application and will be considered in the review process.
