A Place in the Sun
You might have heard the saying: everyone deserves a place in the sun.
This is what the “Fairtrade” movement is all about – Fair Trade is a global movement that aims to improve production and trading conditions to benefit smallholders, farm workers and disadvantaged employees and artisans. In effect everyone that is involved in a product will benefit – not only the management or owners.
I was given some wines back in August to taste and only recently opened all of them. A Place In the Sun wines is made by Zonnebloem winery in Stellenbosch and is also part of the Fairtrade movement.
The range includes a Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.
It is really good value and my favourite of the range was the Shiraz – this retails under R40 in South Africa. Juicy dark red fruit with soft spice and savouriness – none of those jammy flavours that I don’t like.
Look out for the Fairtrade mark if you also believe that we all have a place under the sun…
