Vegan wines? Yes, there is such a thing, and it pairs exquisitely with some of our favorite dishes!
First of all, you must understand that not all wine is vegan, surprising right? When we think of wine we typically think of the grapes and region it came from, but what about the additives and other factors? Frequently, wine is created by using fining agents such as albumin, which are egg whites, casein, which is a protein derived from milk, and isinglass, which is a protein that comes from fish bladder.
Luckily, in this day and age with so many vegan and animal friendly consumers, wine companies have switched to bentonite, which is a clay based agent, as well as activated charcoal that has many benefits and is an amazing choice by these fine wine makers!
It’s best to find vegan wines that are specifically labeled, but we have compiled a list of the best, and what tasty bites to pair it with whatever the occasion may be! Savor these meals with your loved ones, and relish in the fact that you are not doing any harm for the planet whilst indulging!
