The Myth of Vegan Wine

“What is 100% vegan wine?”

“Why isn’t all the wines vegan?”

We often get this kind of question and we don’t blame them.

Technically all wines should be vegan-friendly..right?

However, the majority of people are unaware that wine, although made from grapes, may not be vegan. During the winemaking process, the wine is filtered with substances called ‘fining agents’.

The process is carried out to remove protein, yeast, cloudiness, and other organic particles of the wine. Popular animal-derived fining agents used in the production of wine could be milk protein, egg albumen, fish oil, gelatine, and isinglass (gelatine from fish bladder membranes).

Due to the increasing demand for vegan wines in the market, more wineries are using substitution to the fining agents that are not derived from animals or gluten.

Finca Bacara provides 100% Vegan and Gluten-free wines for vegetarian and wine lovers with gluten intolerance. Other than that, the wines are made by 100% Monastrell grapes, a unique grape variety of DO Jumilla.
