Australian Geographical Indications (AGI)

Definition - What does Australian Geographical Indications (AGI) mean?

The Australian Geographical Indications system ensures that the labeling on wine is factual. The AGI informs the consumer where the wine was made and under what conditions, restrictions and traditions, whether it is produced in Australia or imported from another country.

It is divided into 4 parts:

  1. AGI, or other foreign country geographical indications and translations of those indications and any conditions which are applicable.
  2. Traditional expressions relating to wines originating from a foreign country using their own geographical indications (i.e. DO status).
  3. Quality wine terms for wines originating in Australia.
  4. Additional terms and any conditions relating to the AGIs.
