Introducing La Riojana Wines
April 06, 2016
Looking for a great wine at a great price?
We are proud to offer La Riojana Wines to our already impressive selection of spirits.
This organic, Fair Trade wine comes in four varieties: Bonardo-Malbec, Malbec, Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon, and is priced at just $6.99/each.
Sound too good to be true? It isn't.
A direct co-op to co-op trade makes it possible. Grocery co-ops buy directly, and exclusively, from the wine co-op.
La Riojana's Story
La Riojana is a wine co-op in northwest Argentina with more than 500 members, the majority of which are small-scale farmers with less than seven acres of land each.
Many are the children of former cooperative members, carrying on the family tradition of growing grapes for wine production.
Certified by Fairtrade International (FLO), $2 per case purchased by the Co-op goes directly to funding La Riojana’s community programs. To date, the a secondary school (along with many supplies), a water facility as well as a hospital have been constructed. In addition, the funds help farmers to pay for the costs of organic certification.
