Vegan Wines

While grapes themselves are vegan-friendly, some wines go through a process called fining that can introduce animal-derived products. Fining helps clarify the wine, removing unwanted particles and achieving a certain level of clarity and texture.

So, why aren't all wines vegan? It depends on the choices of the winery. If you're looking for vegan wines, you're in the right place.

So why aren't ALL wines vegan? Here's where the non-vegan aspect comes in: wineries sometimes use fining agents that come from animals. Common examples include:

Isinglass: This is a gelatin derived from fish bladder membranes.
Casein: Milk protein used for clarification.
Egg whites: Used for similar purposes as casein.
There are also vegan-friendly fining agents, such as bentonite clay and activated charcoal.
