Title: Establishment of the Crest of the Blue Ridge Henderson County Viticultural Area 
Abstract:

In response to a petition submitted by (or on behalf of) an industry member, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau proposes to establish the 215-square mile Crest of the Blue Ridge Henderson County American viticultural area (AVA) in Henderson County, North Carolina.  The use of AVA names on wine labels, which is voluntary, allows vintners to better describe the origin of their wine and consumers to better identify the wines they may purchase.
