Wine for the World helps you discover delicious, thoughtful wines from unconventional wine regions. We’re a young wine import company working exclusively with boutique producers and artisanal family vineyards. We make our selections based on quality, responsible social and environmental business practices, limited production levels, and micro-market share in the US. We know getting great, hard-to-find wines is tough. Our aim is to be your resource for thoughtful, delicious wines.
Our team, producers, and partners at Wine for the World believe in quality products, responsible business practices, and community. We believe that you deserve to drink delicious wines where people and our planet are taken into serious consideration. This means that workers are given living wages, and that the environment is respected and preserved in the process. Read more about our Philosophy.
We distribute to various states in the United States. Please contact us to find out if our wines can be found in your area. If we do not distribute in your state, some of our retail partners can ship wine straight to your door!
According to the Fair Trade International website, Fair Trade is defined as "an alternative approach to conventional trade and is based on a partnership between producers and consumers. When farmers can sell on Fairtrade terms, it provides them with a better deal and improved terms of trade. This allows them the opportunity to improve their lives and plan for their future. Fairtrade offers consumers a powerful way to reduce poverty through their every day shopping."
Currently, the Fair Trade organization works with wine only in the countries of South Africa, Argentina, and Chile. Where possible, our producers are certified Fair Trade. In some cases, because of the artisanal nature of the wines we're interested in, our producers are too small to afford Fair Trade's certification costs. When it's not possible, we look for alternative, less-expensive, and local certification systems, like the Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association, Integrated Production in Wine, and the Biodiversity in Wine Initiative, among others.
We do the hard work on figuring out what's behind the wines, so that your only job is figuring out who to share it with!
