Rosé Wines, White and Red Wines classified as AOP (protected appellation of origin) and IGP (protected geographical indication) are produced in accordance with clearly specified standards and must correspond to the criteria defined for each product. AOP is a European quality standard that certifies the authenticity of a given wine, its geographic origin, or the nature of the unique agricultural expertise involved with its production. IGP is a European quality standard, created in 1992 to distinguish authentic agricultural products and products related to the particular geographical area in which they were cultivated.

AOP and IGP are designations applied to products in Europe. The criteria for obtaining AOP certification are more stringent in comparison to the IGP designation, which explains the superior grade of AOP wines in terms of quality relative to those bearing the IGP label. AOP and IGP are official designation of origin and quality promulgated in accordance with European standards, and their governing criteria are determined by the European Union Commission. In France the AOP and IGP are controlled by the INAO (National Institute of Appellations of Origin).

AOP, "Appellation of origin", is an official certification of quality. It identifies a product, guarantee quality and characteristics of growing soil, know-how of the grower or vintner, and conditions of production. INAO specify the criterias of each AOP and formalize the process by prescription (ordinance) of production. According to AOP, a wine is defined as a beverage obtained exclusively by fermentation of grape, and must be without additional ingredients or additives. Under the terms of currently prevailing production rules, “Appellation of Origin” is defined as a production area, with a specific yield limitation, grape varietals and percentage of each grape variety in the blend, minimum alcohol in the finished product, harvest modality, winemaking and aging conditions. All wines claiming the AOP are subject to analysis and taste. They are to be officially approved by the INAO.

Designation IGP is applied to quality "Country Wine". The designation IGP is not to be confused with an appellation, as criterias of control and certification are different from AOP. Yield, minimum alcohol content, lower volatile acidity, and sulphur dioxide content must correspond to the particular criteria of this designation. “Country wines IGP” are subject to verification of their organoleptic qualities by a special tasting commission. Commencing in 2009,  all “country wines” recognized on European level receive the IGP designation.
