To buy Earthbound Organic Wines is to boldly say: “I choose empowerment over oppression; authenticity over additives. I lay claim to wine that was pure to begin with.”
Earthbound is an organic and Fairtrade-certified wine, made from grapes supplied by Papkuilsfontein Vineyards in Darling on the West Coast. The dry-land vineyards, cultivated in an optimal combination of soils and enjoying a cooling maritime climate, produce grapes with a great concentration of fruit flavours.
The Earthbound range consists of all the South African favourites: Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinotage and Pinot Noir. All are classified “Organic”, as can be seen on the label, except the Earthbound Pinot Noir, which is undergoing the conversion in classification. The vision is to be 100% organic in 2018.
Earthbound Organic Wines are committed to making a change in the community. Firstly by reinvesting in the skills of their workforce by directing premiums to facilities and training that would directly benefit them. Secondly, by following organic regulations. No pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers, or synthetic chemicals of any kind are allowed on the vines or in the soil.
Being Organic and Fairtrade accredited reflects Earthbound Wines’ commitment to being a sustainable farm, brand and business. Earthbound wants to partner with global conscious consumers for whom quality is not a choice, but a right, and who are looking for companies who share these values with them. Earthbound reflects the seriousness and substance in its accreditations, organizational values and its drive towards transformation.
Earthbound is making a big impact on the community of Papkuilsfontein. To date, premiums have been directed to computer facilities, appliances for the recreation room, the building of a community hall, training of workers in skills development, literacy, health & safety, first aid as well as life skills. Study loans were also awarded to assist the children of the Papkuilsfontein workers with tuition, book and uniforms.
The Earthbound Cabernet Sauvignon Organic 2015 was awarded with the Organically Grown Overall Winner award, and the Organically Grown Best Red at the Nedbank Green Awards 2016. Produced from selected vineyard blocks on the farm, the Earthbound Cabernet Sauvignon Organic 2015 offers aromas of fruitcake and spice with tobacco leaf and a faint hint of talcum powder. The wine has concentrated notes of inky chocolate and graphite with brambly black and blue berry fruit vivacity.
