November is vegan month! So what better time to talk about vegan wine.
Wait? You didn’t know vegan wine is a thing? Surely all wine is just vegan? It’s just grapes, right?
Oh yes!! Vegan English wine is most definitely a thing!
But what makes a wine vegan?
Obviously, a vegan wine should have no animal products in it or used in the production of it, but when were animal products ever used in wine?!
When wine is produced, some wine makers use a product which is derived from animal products to filter the organic matter from the juice. We aren’t going to go into the details, but just so you can paint a picture, we are just going to say two words – Fish. Bladders…! Vegan wine makers will only use plant-based ways to filter the wine.
