Six Hats - Citrusdal Wines

Six Hats
We are absolutely passionate about growing grapes along the Cape West coast, known for its rolling hills with warm inland temperatures rising from the Swartland (‘Black Land’) during the day and cool Atlantic sea breezes rolling in overnight.

“A region for extreme winemaking – it is harsh and unforgiving but ultimately rewarding.” Charles Back

The deep water retaining soils of these regions sustain un-irrigated bush vine through the long warm summers and are tempered with cool sea breezes at nightfall. The reward comes in the form of small concentrated (grape) berries with well-balanced sugar, acid, tannin and colour, when harvested; produce exceptionally ripe and deep-flavoured wines.
“However, it is our belief that terroir is more than just about soil and climate, but about people too.” Mike Paul

Our Six Hats Fairtrade range reflects the best of the Cape West coast terroir and our commitment to progressive and equitable wine farming. The six hats stand for PARTNERSHIP, CHANGE, POTENTIAL, EQUITY, DIGNITY and SUSTAINABILITY. These principles guide the collaborations and working together of all involved in making, marketing and selling of Six Hats wines.

Our Six Hats range has been welcomed and well received by the international wine community, particularly in those markets which demonstrate a high awareness of ethically traded products, such as Europe, UK, Scandinavia, USA and Canada.

The Six Hats brand encapsulates what Fairtrade represents to each one of us – the farm worker, grape farmer, viticulturist, winemaker and marketer alike – and it sets the tone for what we love to do every day, making great wine from great berries.

The six hats stand for the principles that guide our collaborations:
Partnership –To continually improve our collaboration as we work together towards our Fairtrade goal.
Change – To meaningfully empower the farming and working communities we touch.
Potential – To nurture and grow the potential of individuals as well as community groups so that they in turn may empower themselves.
Equity – To expand our commitment to Fairtrade resulting in a percentage of sales revenue being ploughed back into community upliftment projects.
Dignity – To recognise the contribution of all stakeholders and treat one another with mutual respect.
Sustainability – To continue to grow and develop Six Hats in line with Fairtrade’s guiding social, economic and environmental standards.
