A Vegan-friendly wine has not come into contact with anything derived from an animal or dairy source such as casein (a protein found in milk), gelatine (found in egg whites) or albumen which can be used in the fining process, to remove tiny particles of sediment in a wine that cannot be removed by filtration. Once these particles have been removed, the final wine will be clear and bright. Our range of vegan wines in the UK are either made using a non-animal fining product such as bentonite (a form of clay) or made without filtration, leaving the particles to sink naturally to the bottom of the wine. 

Most wines are vegan friendly; however current EU & UK regulations do not require wineries to include fining agents on labels. To make the shopping for certified Vegan wines easy, we have labelled these wines ‘VG’.

Style |
A wine that is over 13.5% alcohol with more complex flavours and a richer mouthfeel. Factors such as climate, grape variety, ageing in the winery, residual sugar level and alcohol level affect the fullness of flavour and will be good clues to look out for. A full-bodied wine would the equivalent to blue-top whole fat milk. Knowing your preference towards a light bodied wine vs a full-bodied wine can help you to find a wine you’ll enjoy. If you enjoy full-bodied wines with bold intensity, look out for these grape varieties; whites with 3+ years ageing, for the reds Malbec, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Tannat, Mavrud
