Longer term, we urge your constituents to band together to participate in ICANN. There will be more discussion on whether the new gTLD program should recognize protections for geographic indications prior to the launch of the next application round. Most of the work done by ICANN stakeholders is performed using remote participation tools and requires very little investment. ICANN’s thrice-yearly meetings are also fully accessible online. We would be happy to provide more information on how to effectively participate within ICANN if that would be helpful.
On day, when ICNAN is able to take decisions, you can register your .WINE domain name with AlpNames
