The Brazilian legislation on geographical indications (GI) are the Law 9.279 and INPI Normative Instruction 25/2013, establishing the conditions for the registration of GI, whether in modality of “Indicação de Procedência” (IP) or “Denominação de Origem” (DO). Brazil has recognized some GI of fine wines - IP Vale dos Vinhedos, Pinto Bandeira, Altos Montes, Monte Belo and Farroupilha, and DO Vale dos Vinhedos. Others are in structuring process - Campanha Gaúcha, Vale do São Francisco and Altos de Pinto Bandeira. Even without detailing, by INPI, the elements that must be in the specification document, the GI already recognized include, among others: delimited geographical area; varieties of Vitis vinifera authorized; grape production in the delimited area; training systems; maximum productivity; quality of grapes for wine making; authorized wines; oenological practices; physicochemical characteristics for each type of wine and mandatory sensory analysis; elaboration, aging and bottling in the delimited area; labeling standards. In addition, for each GI there is a specific plan of control. It is possible to observe that the specifications for Brazilian GI of wines have some similarity to those adopted in the European Community, and are more specific and demanding than most of the existing GI in the New World.
