A protected geographical indication is like a brand name for the place of origin of a product. The most famous example is Champagne, which must come from the Champagne region of France, or be called sparkling wine. The protected geographical indication is designed to protect and certify the qualities and reputation of products from regions with distinctive production benefits.
