PDO and PGI Wines

There are two quality schemes operating in the UK which are currently based on the EU Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) and Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) schemes. WineGB administers the schemes on behalf of Defra and publishes the lists of PDO and PGI wines.

PDO and PGI Applications

If you are a producer you can apply for PDO or PGI approval for your wines. Details of the scheme rules and the approval process are available on the online system.
