Vegan wines, are all wines vegan?

Maybe you have never thought about it, but are all wines vegan? Many people would answer with a resounding yes to this question because we are talking about wine, i.e. fermented grape juice. How could it not be vegan? Well, here we are going to tell you, because NO, not all wines are vegan.

The moment when wine sometimes ceases to be vegan is the vinification or clarification of wine. This is the process to which the wine is subjected to clean it and eliminate impurities that may cloud it in the step prior to bottling.

In non-vegan wines, casein (a protein derived from milk), gelatin (obtained from animal cartilage, almost always from fish), or the so-called ichthyocolla (obtained from the swim bladder of some fish) are used in the vinification process. In other words, products from different animals, which make wine unsuitable for vegans.

Good news, vegan wines do exist!

More and more wineries are starting to produce vegan wines. How is this possible? So easy, there are two options, the first one is to skip the winemaking process, so the wine would not be exposed to animal products. But there is a second option, to submit the wine to the process, but with a product of vegetable or mineral origin.

These fining agents are proteins extracted from foods such as wheat, potatoes or peas. But undoubtedly the most widely used fining agent is Bentonite, of mineral origin. It is a clay powder that is also used to remove impurities from wines and is normally used in the production of white wines.
