Stellar Winery Fairtrade Heaven on Earth
A nectar of a wine; rich, sweet and sumptuous.
Stellar Organics is situated in Trawal, 275 km north of Cape Town and is the largest producer of fine organic wines in South Africa. It was the first organic winemaking operation in the world to gain Fairtrade certification and the first cellar in Africa to produce no-sulphur added wines on a commercial scale. Stellar was established in 2002 by the four Rossouw brothers, who set it up as a joint venture with a local farmer's group. The winery was awarded Fairtrade status in 2004, and today, its workers own 26% of the shares
