Origin organics for Thresher

19 September, 2007

Thresher has launched a range of organic wines under its Origin label and the Co-op has expanded its Fairtrade range.

The arrival of Origin’s organics coincides with a new label design for the brand. Chief wine buyer Jonathan Butt descrbied it as “modern and clean – no butterflies, no ladybirds”.

There are four organic wines from France – Merlot, Syrah, Syrah/Grenache and Chardonnay – and three from Italy – Pinot Grigio, Trebbiano d’Abruzzo white and Cabernet/Merlot, with prices ranging from £5.99 to £8.99.

The Co-op has introduced two higher priced Reserve Fairtrade wines bringing its total range to 14. Co-op Fairtrade Cape Reserve Sauvignon Blanc is from the Du Toitskloof co-operative in the Western Cape of South Africa and an Argentine Organic Malbec is sourced from the La Riojana co-operative in the Famatina Valley. Both wines will retail for £5.99.

The second annual tasting of Fairtrade wines takes place at Vinopolis in London on Thursday Nov 1.
