Place in the Sun Wines
The same two wines to have earned international medals for Fairtrade-accredited brand Place in the Sun in London earlier this year have been honoured again, also in London.
This time the 2011 vintage of both the Shiraz and the Cabernet Sauvignon have come back with International Wine & Spirit Competition silver medals. A few months ago the 2011 Shiraz took gold, and the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, silver at the 2012 Decanter World Wine Awards. 

Both wines were also amongst the very first in South Africa to be entitled to carry the Ethical Seal as confirmation of the fair labour practices involved at every step from vine to bottle.Cellar master Deon Boshoff sees the consistency of the brand’s international performance as a very encouraging sign. “These achievements make such a difference. We’re a new brand and the positive attention helps us to stand out from the crowd.” 

All the fruit for Place in the Sun wines is purchased at a premium with the funds going towards farm worker projects to enhance the quality of their lives and those of their families.
