In 2010 an 8.8 magnitude earthquake devastated Chile and caused significant damage and loss of life in the Maule province, the major wine region of Chile. Now more than ever, Fair Trade farmers need the support of consumers to help them rebuild their communities and continue to cultivate their crops.
Sip the fruits of fair labor from Fair Trade wineries. Fair Trade wine growers in Argentina, Chile and South Africa can now rely on stable incomes to provide for their families, pay workers fairly, and provide working environments that are safe and free from child labor, forced overtime and harassment. Fair Trade grapes are grown sustainably, in nutrient-rich soil without harmful pesticides, and the result is a delicious wine that benefits the land and the communities that live and depend on it.
