South Africa is the largest producer of Fairtrade wine in the world: two thirds of the 27 million bottles of Fairtrade wine sold in 2013 were produced in SA and about 5% of the local wine grape production is Fairtrade certified.

The current 28 certified wine grape producers extend over 68 farms and employ over 2,500 farm workers. Counting their families and communities, we estimate that the sale of South African Fairtrade wine is a key contributor in the improvement of living and working conditions for over 12,000 people in the Western Cape.

South Africans will be happy to know that for every Fairtrade wine bottle they buy, 70 cents goes back to the farm workers in Fairtrade Development Premium. Fairtrade certification also ensures that the wine is produced sustainably in accordance with Fairtrade Standards and that full traceability is in place.
