Yes, you can you enjoy wine AND support a local community!
If you are reading this you are already a step closer to supporting a local community, an individual, a parent, a child. By drinking Petit wine. Not a joke in sight.
Should you choose indulge in this delicious brand of fine white wine as the weekend starts, you may feel a little more proud of yourself in the morning
At Ken Forrester Vinyards, it is their vision to improve the lot of the labour force by growing their business and providing the maximum job opportunities in a market that is desperate for support.
They go a step further and farm sustainably, with no herbicides or pesticides and till by hand. This practise is hugely labour intensive, but very satisfying. They prune & thin out leaves all by hand and finally harvest by hand as well.
The additional employment required goes some way to improve the quality of life in their community in the knowledge that if each community member looked after their own, no-one would go wanting.
This is the “Petit” proposal each bottle is a victory that represents a small change – for the better – in someone’s life.
