Project Description

SIX HATS

This Entry Level Fairtrade range reflects the best of the Cape West coast terroir and our commitment to progressive and equitable wine farming – a wine for the people.

The six hats stand for Partnership, Change, Potential, Equity, Dignity and Sustainability.

These principles guide the collaborations and working together of all involved in the making, marketing, and selling of Six Hats wines.

Grapes are sourced from Fairtrade certified vineyards predominantly in the Swartland region. (excluding de-alcoholised wines)
