the Visio Vintners Vineyards
VISIO VINTNERS cultivates their own grapes on land adjacent to Kleine Zalze Wines. The 20.2 hectares of land is leased from the Stellenbosch Municipality on a long term basis. Replanting of the vineyards started in 2017 and the last blocks will be replanted in 2022.
Our vineyards are all Fairtrade, WIETA and IPW certified. Under Fairtrade a proportion of the proceeds of the sale of wines is returned to the farm workers. These funds are autonomously administered by a committee known as the Fairtrade Premium Committee (FPC), which is made up of workers and a management representative to lend support.
The FPC receives suggestions for projects from qualifying workers and then decides on prioritisation, based on inclusive discussions and the availability of funds.
