Fairtrade Fortnight (February 27-March 11) is the perfect time for wine lovers to sip for a good cause.

Try The Co-operative Fairtrade Cinsault Shiraz, SA (£4.99, The Co-op).

A full-bodied, confident and memorable red, with pungent berry notes that don’t overpower the taste, and a delightfully polished finish, it’s a super foodie’s red and a steal at under a fiver.

Tesco has put Fairhills, the world’s largest Fairtrade wine brand, on its shelves.

Try Fairhills Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2011, SA (£4.99 from £7.79, until March 13, Tesco) for a soft, spicy wine that’s packed with jammy raspberry fruit, a hint of black pepper and subtle tannins on the dry finish.

Sainsbury’s has launched a new Taste the Difference Morador Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina (£5.99 from £7.99, until March 13, Sainsbury’s), which is a real corker if you love a punchy red. Powerful with brambly fruit flavours, layers of chocolate and vanilla spice, smooth tannins and a light dusting of spice, it’s perfect to enjoy with a Sunday roast.
