Few things say small win quite like a really great glass of wine. I mean, kids returning towels to the bathroom rather than leaving them on their bedroom floor is right up there but you know what I mean. Anyway, what makes a glass of wine even greater is when it just so happens to do good as well as taste good. And that’s exactly what South African winemaker Bruce Jack does. His Fairtrade wine range, available from the Co-op, includes the Fairtrade Shiraz (see this week’s reviews) and supports the Merwida Farm Village in the Breedekloof region where the grapes are grown. These wines help people in some of South Africa’s poorest and most disadvantaged communities, improving the living conditions and livelihoods of the workers and their families. Bruce truly works to make a difference (during lockdown he turned one of his wineries into a soup kitchen) but he also makes properly good wine.
To help spread the good wine word, Bruce and his team have given me five (FIVE!) cases of Bruce Jack wines (6 x 75cl) to give away to five of you and all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning one of them is leave a comment here before the 1st October. I’ll then be raising a glass with Bruce on the 7th October on Instragram Live at 7pm and we’ll announce the winners (I’ll also email you if you win so don’t worry if you don’t do Instagram). Good luck!
T&Cs: UK residents only, must be over 18 years old to enter. Competition closes on 1st October 2021 at 11.59pm. The winners will be announced and notified by email and the prize will be sent to the winner after that date.

Current red in the rack: Bruce Jack Shiraz
Price: £7.00 - Buy From Co-op
Packed with autumnal fruit flavours – think ripe plums, berries and a touch of spice – this is just the kind of cosy red I’m wanting right now. Made from Shiraz grapes grown in the Breedekloof region it’s got real warmth but without being heavy. Brilliantly done by Bruce, it’s made from Fairtrade certified grapes and is incredible value for money. Win win, in other words.
