A golden fruity wine with a touch of subtle apricot and pear flavours on the palate and a bouquet of guava and litchi, Earthbound Organic Fairtrade Chenin Blanc is wine grown according to certified organic principles so you can be sure you’ll be drinking pure golden deliciousness without chemicals of any kind. Earthbound wines are grown in the Papkuilsfontein Vineyards near Darling, brushed by the cool sea breezes and surrounded by beautiful wildflowers. They are Fairtrade certified too and are implementing skills transfer that benefits the families living and working on the farm, to ensure the long term viability of the wine farming industry.
- SGS certified organic wine made with organically grown grapes
- No pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers, or synthetic chemicals

Earthbound wines represent a ground breaking initiative that promotes transformation in the South African wine industry. For every ton of grapes harvested, a premium is paid to the farm workers. A joint body, representing the workers decides on how premiums will be spent, funding community upliftment such as a recreation room, computer facilities, skills development and study loans.
Papkuilsfontein is a member of the Biodiversity & Wine Initiative to protect the wealth of biodiversity found in the Cape Floral Kingdom by rehabilitating land on wine farms to indigenous habitat.
