DEFINITIONS
 A zone is an area of land, without any particular qualifying attributes.

 A region must be a single tract of land, comprising at least five independently
owned wine grape vineyards of at least five hectares each and usually produce five hundred tonnes of wine grapes in a year. A region is required to be measurably discrete from adjoining regions and have measurable homogeneity in grape growing attributes over its area.

A sub-region also must be a single tract of land, comprising at least five independently owned wine grape vineyards of at least five hectares each and usually produce five hundred tonnes of wine grapes in a year. However, a sub-region is required to be substantially discrete within the region and have substantial homogeneity in grape growing attributes over the area.
An application for a sub-region cannot be considered until the region of which it is part has been entered into the Register of Protected Names.
