Six Hats

Pinotage, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz

Citrusdal, South Africa

The Citrusdal Wines cellar is in the heart of the town and was initially amalgamated as a co-operative in 1957. In 2007 the operation was re-structured under the guidance of Charles Back. The company is now a collaborative partnership including a number of Fairtrade farmers, Charles Back and Mike Paul, who is a leading UK wine marketer. The incorporation of the Fairtrade farmers has indirectly seen a large number of farm workers from the community becoming partners in the business, as the funds generated through the Fairtrade levies go directly into the community.
