Understanding Vegan and Organic Wines: Differences and Considerations
Vegan wine is wine that has not been made with any animal products. This includes the fining process, which is used to clarify the wine. Some common animal products used in fining include casein, albumin, gelatin, and isinglass.
Vegan wines are not necessarily organic. Organic wine is made from grapes that have been grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides. Vegan wine can be made from organic grapes, but it can also be made from grapes that have been grown using pesticides and herbicides.
The label on a vegan wine will usually indicate whether it is vegan. If the label does not specify, the wine is likely not vegan. There are many vegan wines available, and they can be found at most wine shops.
Here are some tips for finding vegan wine:
- Look for the vegan symbol on the label.
- Check the winemaker's website to see if they have a list of vegan wines.
- Ask the staff at your local wine shop for recommendations.
