Wine

In this guide we investigate, score and rank the ethical and environmental record of 35 wine brands.

We also look at workers' rights, chemicals, shine a spotlight on the ethics of Emiliana winery and give our recommended buys.

About Ethical Consumer

This is a product guide from Ethical Consumer, the UK's leading alternative consumer organisation. Since 1989 we've been researching and recording the social and environmental records of companies, and making the results available to you in a simple format.

What to buy

What to look for when buying wine:

  • Is it Fairtrade? The wine industry is rife with serious human rights abuses. At its most extreme, documentary makers found that vineyards in South Africa were paying workers in alcohol rather than wages. If buying wine from outside Europe, look for a Fairtrade to address some of these problems.

  • Is it local? Europe, and increasingly the UK itself, has a thriving wine industry. By buying local you can cut down on carbon emissions from flying wine half-way across the world. But also look for organic to be sure that you really are minimising environmental impact.

  • Is it homemade? Making your own wine is a good way to use up surplus gluts if you grow your own fruit, or to utilise the many wild plants that surround us, even in cities. By making your own wine you can be sure that it is chemical-free, vegan and environmentally friendly.

Best Buys

Our Best Buys are vegan, Fair Trade and organic certified wines from:

Recommended buys

Much the best place to buy vegan, organic and/or Fair Trade wines are our Best Buy wine retailers Vintage Roots or Vinceramos. You can buy both locally-produced and far travelled products online on  their websites.

Of the supermarkets, the Co-op has the best range of Fairtrade and vegan wines.

What not to buy

What to avoid when buying wine:

  • Is it grown using chemicals? For agricultural workers and local people, the health impacts of extensive agrochemical use are numerous, not to mention the environmental issues. Look for organic wines to avoid the huge volumes of agrochemicals used in the industry each year.

  • Does it contain animal products? Surprisingly, lots of wine isn't vegan or even vegetarian! A substance called Isinglass is used to make the wine clear. Isinglass is made from fishes' swim bladders, so go for a vegan brand to avoid this.

  • Profits over people? In 2009, War on Want exposed the impact of British supermarkets on working conditions in the wine industry in South Africa. Sadly, little seems to have changed since then, so look for Fairtrade wine if buying from outside Europe.

Companies to avoid

Constellation Brands faces an international boycott call for its extraction of drinking-water sources in Mexico. It partly owns the wine brands Hardy's, Echo Falls and Banrock Station, so we would recommend avoiding these brands. Supermarkets have also long been linked to workers' rights abuses on South African vineyards, so we would also recommend avoiding own-brand wines from those that score poorly in our table.

  • Hardy's
  • Echo Falls
  • Banrock Station
  • Asda
  • Tesco
  • Morrisons
  • Sainbury's

Our Analysis

The guide covers over 35 wine brands, from supermarket own-brands to some innovative environmental alternatives.   

This report also aims to give you a rough guide of what you can expect from an ethical wine and where you can get these from. 

We’ve chosen brands that are widely available as well as some that represent something a little bit different, so you can buy a wine that fits your concerns and your budget.

There is no way that we can produce a definitive guide in what is a huge market with thousands of small producers, but we hope you find this guide a useful starting point.

On the Score Table

On the table above brands marked: 

  • O produce organic wines and gain an extra point
  • F produce Fair Trade wines and gain an extra point
  • V produce vegan wines and gain an extra point 

You can see on the table that market is broken down into roughly three sections. At the top we have the ethical alternatives which tend to score between 12 and 17 on the table. Sign in or subscribe to see these companies.

Next we have the dedicated wine brands. They only produce wine (and other beverages) and while they are not altogether very ethical they only pick up marks in a few categories due to their limited activities.

Of these brands we were disappointed to see that more weren’t at least offering some ethically accredited wines especially as the supermarkets were starting to do this. In addition, as a group of companies, they generally scored badly for supply chain management which is problematic in a sector where wages tend to be low for seasonal workers (grape pickers). They also tended to score badly for environmental reporting since there was not much discussion of toxic pesticide use. 

At the bottom we have the supermarkets which pick up marks across the board for their involvement in unethical practices in everything from wine making to selling factory farmed meat. 

However that isn’t to say that some supermarkets aren’t doing some good work in this area.

Supermarkets' Own Brand Wines

We searched the websites of the major supermarkets for details of their own-brand wines. Some did not appear to have any of their own brands, such as Lidl and Ocado, and so do not appear on the table even though they do sell a lot of wine. 

We looked for which had own-brand wines that were Fair Trade, organic, or vegan, and this varied. 

On the table we have only included their products without these ethical features; below is more information.

Table: supermarket own-brand wine ethical accreditation

Workers’ Rights in Wine 

We last covered wine in 2010. In that guide we reported on War on Want’s damning investigation  which exposed the impact of British supermarkets on working conditions in the wine industry in South Africa. The spotlight on this industry has not gone away and sadly, it seems little has changed since then.

In 2011, Human Rights Watch published a report, ”Ripe with abuse,” which focused on the poor working conditions in South Africa’s vineyards. In 2015, the International Labour Organisation (ILO) made an equally shocking expose of working conditions for South African farm workers in general, including those who work in the ‘Winelands’.

Most recently a documentary, commissioned by three Scandinavian public service broadcasters, focused attention on some of the worst offending farms, including Robertson Winery where workers went on strike for almost 14 weeks in 2016, fighting for a living wage.

The documentary, entitled Bitter Grapes, found evidence that a form of the “Dop-system”, where workers are paid in alcohol instead of money, was still in use. Despite being banned in 1960, researchers found that farmers allow alcohol-dependent workers to buy alcohol on credit, leading to a form of modern day slavery where workers are trapped into labouring on vineyards.

The documentary also revealed that South Africa has one of the world’s highest levels of children born with the severe brain damage known as FAS (Fetal Alcohol Syndrome). 

Both the film and the earlier Human Rights Watch report described these conditions as part of a chain of exploitation stretching back to the era of slavery.

The film asked critical questions of WIETA, the Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trade Association, as its board gives its industry members a majority say. Almost half of all wine producers in South Africa are members, and the organisation issues a Certified Fair Labour Practice label. A response by WIETA to the film stated that it was a “distortion of the work of WIETA and the progress that has been made in improving employment conditions”.

The documentary was commissioned after a sharp rise in imports of South African wine into Nordic countries. In ten years Denmark saw a 78% increase in South African wine imports. In Sweden, South African wines had become the second or third most popular wines, often outselling French wine.

Bitter Grapes had a big impact. Two Danish supermarkets removed Robertson wines from their shelves, and several major Scandinavian retailers organised an array of inspections. Robertson’s workers continue to try to improve their conditions through annual wage negotiations.

few farms in South Africa now explore the history of slavery in the area, some taking it further by connecting this to present day conditions. Elsewhere in South Africa, Fair Trade certifications help to ensure that problems are minimised.

In fact 28 of the 49 certified Fairtrade wine producer organisations are based in South Africa. Stellar Organics, who appear at the top of our score table, are one such organisation. They are 26% owned by workers including seasonal workers, and have a non-profit organization which manages development projects on the farms and in the communities where many of the Stellar workers live. 

They are certified by the Fair for Life scheme which is different but largely equivalent to the Fairtrade certifications we are more normally used here at Ethical Consumer. 

Why buy Fair Trade certified wine?

As well as addressing some of the problems identified above, Fair Trade certification helps ensure that farmers receive a fair price for their crop and that the rights of workers on wine grape plantations are protected.  As with many sectors in the food industry grape growers are often faced with huge price fluctuations. When prices are low this can have a negative effect on farmers and farm labourers alike. The minimum price aims to cover small growers’ average costs of production. They also ensure that farms have high labour standards for workers.

Fair Trade certified plantations must also adhere to core International Labour Organization conventions, including the right to join a trade union and collectively negotiate their working conditions, a safe and healthy environment and no discrimination or child labour.

The Fair Trade premium also helps to fund additional projects at vineyards such as building schools or paying for medical expenses. On vineyards with hired workers, a Premium Committee, consisting of elected workers, administers the premium and a General Assembly, consisting of all workers, decides how the funds should be used. Smallholder winegrower cooperatives collect the premium payments on behalf of their members, who decide how the funds shall be spent, for instance for new harvesting and processing equipment or education facilities for their children.

The Fair Trade standards also encourage more environmentally sustainable farming practices and control the use of pesticides. You can read more about Emiliana, an innovative larger scale Fairtrade certified vineyard in Chile, below.

Four Fairtrade Wine Facts

  • Around 27 million litres of Fairtrade wine are sold globally each year
  • The UK is far and away the biggest consumer of Fairtrade wine, accounting for half of total global sales. 
  • There are 49 Fairtrade wine producer organisations worldwide, across South Africa, Chile, Argentina and the Lebanon, representing more than 5,500 farmers and workers.
  • South Africa is the largest producer of Fairtrade wine globally, with 28 producer organisations, and accounts for around two-thirds of Fairtrade wine sales. 

Is local or Fairtrade wine best?

Discussions around ethical wine choices sometimes come up against whether it is better to buy a Fair Trade wine that has travelled halfway around the world or a locally produced wine with a lower carbon footprint. 

Arguments on the Fair Trade side suggest that it is an opportunity to contribute to weaker southern economies where there is more extreme poverty. They go on to say, that if you look at the carbon burned in transporting it as ‘belonging’ to the southern producer, then there is still a huge imbalance in per capita carbon use in northern and southern economies. Some also argue that global shipping is less carbon intensive than using rail travel from Southern to Northern Europe.

On the local buyers side, if there is an opportunity to buy a product with a lower carbon impact then that should be taken. Southern wines should be consumed by those nearer to the markets.  Because of this, some retailers (such as our own award winning Unicorn supermarket in Manchester) will only stock European wines.

The answer is only resolvable by individuals deciding whether their own immediate priorities are for addressing climate change or north/south social inequalities.

With climate change, there are now over 500 vineyards and 100 wineries in the UK. This is labelled as either English or Welsh. English vineyards are listed on English Wine Producers. English wines, particularly sparkling wines, have won international awards in recent years.

Vinceramos and Vintage Roots both stock a wide variety of English and European organic wines.

Chemicals in Your Wine

Pesticides and other chemical treatments are widely used in the wine industry as grapes are particularly prone to disease and pests.

Nowhere is this use more pronounced that in France where farmers use around 60,000 tonnes of pesticides each year and is Europe’s biggest user by volume. 

According to the Guardian, "Vineyards represent just 3% of agricultural land in France, but the wine industry accounts for 20% of product volumes relating to plant health, and 80% of fungicide use specifically."  

The problem has been acknowledged by the French government and in 2008 they pledged to halve the country’s pesticide use by 2018. However, by 2015 use had actually increased and the targeted reduction has now been delayed until 2025. 

This delay comes despite the French government officially recognising a link between pesticides and various illnesses including Parkinson’s disease, which they admitted in 2012. 

The issues received new attention in 2016 when a film focusing on the Bordoux region of France found that traces of 44 different pesticides were found in hair samples taken from school children  – 24 of the chemicals were either banned or classed as particularly dangerous. 

Film makers linked these chemicals to incidences of autism and attention deficit disorder. On seeing the evidence then agriculture minister Stéphane Le Foll accepted the findings and described the issue as "a time bomb, a danger to health, to the environment and perhaps even to the economy’.

The film was made in part as a response to a 2014 incident that saw 23 pupils from a school in Bordeaux‘s Blaye region affected by nausea and headaches following fungicide spraying in a next-door vineyard. An investigation by local government agencies found the children’s symptoms matched those of pesticide exposure.

Previous studies have found that the chemicals sprayed on grapes often end up in the bottle. In 2013 the Decanter magazine reported that a study of more than 300 French wines found that 90% contained traces of chemical vine treatments. Researchers concluded that some wines contained up to nine separate chemicals associated with treatments, with ‘anti-rot’ fungicides the most commonly found.  

In our research we found that the larger wine companies paid little attention to this issue in their environmental reports. Of the four larger mainstream brands we covered, three received a worst Ethical Consumer rating for environmental reporting and one a middle rating. None had any targets relating to reducing the use of harmful pesticides in their publicly available environmental reporting. 

A group known as the ‘Médoc Pesticides Collective’ have staged demonstrations in the Bordeaux‘s region to highlight the issues and support those suffering the long term effects of exposure to pesticide.

Why buy organic wine?

Organic wine is made using "organically grown grapes from vineyards that support biodiversity and enhance soil health" say the Soil Association in their standards documents. These techniques including ‘cover crops’, which are used between the vines to attract beneficial insects that are the natural enemy of the problem species who eat the grapes. 

Organic farming minimises the use of harmful chemical pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilisers, thereby addressing many of the problemsraised in our chemicals section above. Instead, organic production aims to build better soils using composts, manure and other traditional methods. 

They add that "Organic wine makers use the minimum amount of additives and processing aids required to produce [their wine]".

The strict standards also reduce a number of chemicals that are often added to wines including:

  • Sulphur Dioxide - a preservative with anti-oxidative and anti-microbial properties, which some people are allergic too. Some say this also causes hangovers but there is no evidence to back up this claim.
  • Thiamine hydrochloride - which encourages yeast development.
  • Plus they also try and encourage producers to organically source additional ingredients such as tannins and yeasts where possible.
  • Globally organic standards also prohibit the use of GMO ingredients. 
  • There is also greater transparency in the organic sector as all organic products are fully traceable and must be strictly certified.

Vegan Wine

Some wine isn’t suitable for vegans as it contains isinglass, a substance made from the bladders of fish. Isinglass is just one example of a fining agent used help clear impurities from wine.

All wine is filtered and, outside the natural wine community is ‘fined’ in some way to ensure that it is clear and that excess yeast and sediments are removed.

The fining agent reacts with the yeast to create a substance which can be easily separated from the wine. This process would naturally occur anyway but adding a fining agent helps to speed up this process.

The good news is, according to John Beveridge of Vintage Roots, that

Fewer vinyards are using isinglass as they become more mindful of consumers and have found that other methods such as the use of bentonite clay are equally effective.

'Natural' Wines

‘Natural’ wines are produced without any major intervention during the wine making process and are usually produced by small artisanal winemakers. Natural wines are usually made from organic grapes (but are often not certified as such due to the expense). However natural is more about what happens at the winery than how the grape is grown. 

‘Natural’ wine is having a surge in popularity (or at least notoriety) so much so that even Oddbins now stock two brands. It is eulogised about by its fans and dismissed as a cult by its detractors but its popular and seems here to stay.

There is no clear definition of what a natural wine is. This has caused problems for some wine sellers, John Beverage of Vintage Roots describes it as the “dreaded” Natural wines question. They stock a number of natural wines but often struggle to explain to people what to expect.

“We have wines like the Stellar 'no added sulphur' range which could be considered natural as they are organic, natural yeast, no sulphur etc, but if we sell them to customers looking for natural wines then they could be disappointed because it doesn't taste 'weird' enough.” He says, adding that:

“We also have the reverse problem where customers might not be expecting a wine to be cloudy, so communication is definitely the key, working out what the customer wants, and letting them know what to expect”.

Some key differences from "normal" wines are that natural wines:

  • Have no added sulphites (usually used to prevent oxidation and anti bacterial), just naturally occurring ones. 
  • Are spontaneously or naturally fermented using naturally occurring yeast or wild yeasts
  • Are unfiltered so there is often a large amount of sediment
  • Are not fined (see Vegan wines section above for more on fining)
  • Plus the grapes are always picked by hand.

The good news is that they are a quirky alternative to their mainstream or ethical cousins. The downside is that the wines can be unpredictable in taste and a tad unstable and go off quickly. 

So how do they taste? Opinion ranges from "ghastly" to "divine" and obviously it varies depending on the bottle. In general they are cloudier in appearance and, according to food writer Lizzie Noonan, who gave the subjected a balanced appraisal, are often "lighter, fresher and brighter... [with an] aftertaste alludes to a lower percentage of alcohol." 

Alice Lascalles of magazine ‘How To Spend It' likened a natural wine tasting event to an "extreme sport" explaining that "for every unequivocal stunner I tasted, I had to wade through at least a dozen total stinkers."

I guess that buying a natural wine is a bit like investing in a tech start up rather than going for a building society ISA. It's cool and a bit different but you might end up with nothing. 

Because of its inconsistent supply and quality we've not included any on the table, however you can find it online or at various wine stores. For example you can buy it, at your own risk, from the Organic Wine Club or Vintage Roots.

Making Your Own Wine

Making your own wine is a good way to use up surplus gluts if you grow your own fruit, or to utilise the many wild plants that surround us, even in cities. And you don’t have to use the more obvious ingredients – wine has been made from Earl Grey tea, tomatoes and mushrooms (not all at once!) The fruit doesn’t even have to be ripe; umeshu is a liqueur made from steeping green plums with alcohol and sugar, and a great way of using up unripe fruit.

The Urban Wine Company in South London grew from such beginnings. In 2007 a group of friends in Tooting, South London pooled their grape crops and pressed 20 bottles of ‘Chateau Tooting - Furzedown Blush’. It now acts as a collective for grape growers all over London and the South East, collecting their crop and delivering it back as wine. The 2009 harvest yielded over 1.5 tonnes of grapes and a thousand bottles of wine. The Urban Wine Company describes itself as being “on a mission to reach more urban grape growers and plant vines across the capital.”

There is a veritable cornucopia of books for the home tipple producer, including Winemaking the Natural Way (by Ian Ball, ISBN 0716020998) 

Online resources include: Self Sufficientish

Search ‘How to turn your excess fruit and veg into wine’ for recipes. 

See this website for recipes for the unexpected wines mentioned above (apparently the mushroom wine tastes almost like a conventional white wine). 

Company behind the brand

Tim Hunt speaks to Sebastian Ramon of the Emiliana winery about his company’s journey towards more sustainable wine production

Your farm seems to be an example of good environmental practice  and workers. Has this always been the case or has it been a long journey to get to where you are today?  

It has been a long and challenging journey. Our sustainability journey was initiated 20 years ago. It was not the fashion or seen as a market opportunity, but rather a true and sincere concern, and the whole Emiliana team is still committed to work for a better world.

Why did you undertaken such deep changes?

We have always had a very close connection with the workers and the land. This was the reason why in 1998 we started the conversion process to organic and biodynamic production. We wanted to protect both workers and also the surrounding communities from toxic agrochemicals. 

How do you go the extra mile to protect workers and pay them a living wage?

We wanted focus on the health of our workers by reducing their exposure to pollutants but we also decided to commit to Fair Trade production, adopting higher standards of ethical production to improve the quality of life for our workers.

But it is a complicated issue. It is a national discussion about the living wage. We pay more than requested by our regulation, and we also complement salaries with several benefits [such as scholarships and medical cover for industrial accidents] which are usually not considered in discussions on wages, but have become very important for families. We also work together with our Unions to discuss salaries and also projects to improve their quality of life, 

How does the relationship between company and community go beyond the traditional wage labour relationship?

We are involved with the communities in two main ways. First in the areas where we have operations we encourage the community to develop organic vegetable gardens, inside Emiliana´s property or in schools. We aim to help people to re-connect with the land and to promote healthy lifestyles. The second way is through the Fair Trade Committee, which is composed only of workers, so they put aside money from the Fair Trade premium to help their communities, for improving restrooms in schools or sports clubs, repairing Churchs, etc.

How are you coping with and responding to climate change? Has it had a big impact on your company?

The impact of climate change has been big for us, and mitigation and adaptation are key for a sustainable future. We are reducing energy consumption in our operations, next year moving to a more sustainable energy source [solar]. Most importantly, we have been ‘farming carbon’ (known as sequestering) through organic practices, specifically increasing organic carbon content in our soils.

What wildlife have you encouraged through your biological corridors. Why is this important?

With our biodiversity initiatives we have two goals. Firstly to increase the diversity and population of natural predators, mostly insects, which help us to control pests inside the vineyards. The second is to increase connectivity in agriculturally dominated landscapes, promoting mobility of species around and into natural landscapes.

What are your plans for the long term. How do you see the farm developing its practices over the next 10 years regarding sustainability and workers’ rights?

Our plan is to keep improving the job conditions for Emiliana´s workers and help them to increase their families’ quality of life.  We want them to work happily in Emiliana and offer them opportunities to develop. We also are working to be active leaders in the promotion of sustainable agriculture (organic, biodynamic, regenerative, etc.) We think it is the only way possible for the future, so we are documenting internal practices, doing research and creating communities to share our experiences and also working with decision makers to increase adoption of organic agriculture.
