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, “Step by Step” 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?

Step by Step Sauvignon Blanc is Fair Trade Certified™ from grapes sourced from 15-year-old vines planted in clay loam soils.  The grapes were hand harvested at peek ripeness then cold fermented in stainless steel tanks to maintain the bright fruit flavors. Minimal aging on the lees softened and rounded out the wine unveiling a mix of fresh grapefruit and lime aromas with tropical fruit on the palate, brilliant acidity and a delightfully, lingering finish.  The combination of vineyard location and age, trellis system, and Fair Trade Certified™ make this wine one of the best examples Chile has to offer.”  Excerpt organicwinetradecompany.com
