Centennial is a proud participant of a unique social movement known as “Fair Trade.” The intent of this socially and environmentally responsible movement is to benefit producers and workers in developing countries by promoting sales of a wide variety of products that directly impact the economic well-being of small and underdeveloped communities. Through Fair Trade, Los Cowboys directly improves the quality of life for the strong, honest and proud vineyard workers, their families, and their communities. The Fair Trade Certified™ program directly supports a better life for farming families in the developing world through fair prices, community development and environmental stewardship. What better way is there to participate in a humanitarian and environmentally responsible effort than by enjoying a glass of wine that is Fair Trade Certified?

Los Cowboys Torrontés is Fair Trade Certified™ and is produced from three small farming communities of Lavalle, San Martin, and Medrano in the Mendoza region of Argentina. The Torrontés grape itself is still under debate weather it is truly indigenous to Argentina, or if it is a direct clone of the Albariño grape brought by the Spanish colonists and missionaries. Specifically, this wine offers deliciously refreshing flavors of fresh apricot, quince and starfruit with an aromatic blend reminiscent of a honey and jasmine incense.  Absolutely enjoyable!
