Join the sustainability team for an evening of Fairtrade wine tasting with our expert sommelier Leonie! We’ll be sampling four wines from South Africa and South America. Learn to identify the main characteristics of different styles of wine and test your new knowledge in a blind-tasting competition!
Open to all University of Westminster staff and students. Registered attendees will be informed of the room closer to the date. Please let us know if you have registered and can’t attend so someone else can take your place as spaces are limited!

About Fairtraide Wine
Wine grape farming and wine-making are time-consuming, strenuous and labour-intensive industries. The demanding processes involved often lead to poor labour standards and living conditions for both small wine grape farmers and hired labourers on large plantations, making the industry both socially and often environmentally unsustainable.
Fairtrade Standards are designed to improve employment conditions and protect the rights of workers on wine grape plantations and to support small wine grape farmers’ organisations in gaining more control within supply chains and increasing their incomes. There are now 42 Fairtrade wine producer organisations worldwide, across South Africa, Chile, Argentina and Lebanon, representing more than 5,000 farmers and workers.
