An appellation is a legally defined and protected name used to identify wines as originating in a region or locality.

Australia's labelling laws use an appellation system that distinguishes the geographic origins of the grape. Under these laws, at least 85% of the grapes must be from the region that is designated on the label. During the 1990s more definitive boundaries were established that divided Australia into Geographic Indications (GI) known as zones, regions and subregions.

The GI Zone layer is selectable in the map view.
