The world behind a glass of South-African wine. Emma Lesuis went back to the winery where she made the documentary "Vir 'n glasie wyn" (For a glass of wine) and saw that little had changed. That's why she went looking for solutions and discovered the world of Fairtrade.
Heerlikwyn, Fairhills and House of Mandela; the shelf is full of fairtrade wine from South-Africa. It seems that time's over for exploiting vintners and workers. But choosing such a bottle: what do you buy exactly? Is Fairtrade really the solution for (small) farmers and agricultural labourers in South-Africa?
