When you buy Fairtrade wine, you are enabling farmers and workers to earn a fair price as well as extra Fairtrade Premium for community investment.
Wine producers in Latin America and South Africa experienced social, economic and political challenges that have affected their trade, from the apartheid system in South Africa, to low market prices in Latin American countries, leaving farmers in unstable positions.
There are over 50 manufacturers and plantations producing Fairtrade wine, increasing both the quality of the wine and the lives of the farmers and workers involved in its production.
According to the Wine Institute, Americans are drinking more wine than ever — 892 million gallons in 2013!
With every purchase of Fairtrade wine, you are contributing to this positive impact.
