WIETA CERTIFICATION


In September of 2014, Oldenburg Vineyards was also granted WIETA (Wine Industry Ethical Trade Association) certification. WIETA’s code precludes the use of child labor, asserts that employment should be freely chosen, and that all employees have the right to a healthy and safe working environment. In addition, workers must have the right to freedom of association, a living wage and be protected from unfair discrimination. Wineries granted the ethical seal must enter an annually renewable, legally binding agreement with WIETA in which they are required to pass a full audit including on-site inspections. They must also identify all of their suppliers, 60% of which must also be WIETA-accredited, with the other 40% having to demonstrate that they are preparing themselves for accreditation.
