Wine, Beer and Spirits Could Get Nutrition Labels

Article at Good Morning America, where they seem to think it's a really spiffy idea.  No mention of how the regulatory process, testing and changes in labeling will be paid for.

Wine, beer and spirits manufacturers may soon have to disclose calorie content and other nutritional information on bottles and cans. But for now, such labeling remains optional.

The U.S. Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau, which is part of the Treasury Department, proposed a labeling rule in 2007 that would require alcoholic beverage manufacturers to include calories, carbohydrates, fat and protein content on their labels, but it has yet to make a decision on whether to implement the rule. It announced last week that manufacturers could add this information if they wanted to.
