Shelby notes (September 2016):
"Hi I called Bogle winery to inquire about their 2014 Cabernet. After being transferred about 6 times as no one knew what I was asking they told me no animal products are used in the making of this wine. I specifically asked about the filtering as was told no 'egg whites or anything'."

Company email (March 2015):
"I was able to discuss this with our Director of winemaking, and it turns out that our entire line of 2013 vintages are vegan with the exception of our 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon and our 2013 Essential Red wines."

Company email (January 2015):
"Thank you for your interest in our Bogle 2012 Old Vine Zinfandel. I just checked with our Associate Winemaker, and that specific wine was not fined with egg whites."

Company email (October 2014):
"We do not use any animal based products in our production other than egg whites. The egg whites are only used in a case by case basis depending on the astringency level of a particular vintage. However if you enjoy drinking our white wines, you can continue, as we would never fine a white wine with egg whites. I checked with our winemaker on newer red vintages that did not use egg whites, I will leave the list below. Please let me know if you have any other questions, cheers!

Vegan Red’s/No Egg Whites
2012 Petite Sirah
2012 Essential Red
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
2012 Merlot
2012 Pinot Noir

All white wines are vegan, no egg whites added.

2011 Phantom HAS egg whites, not vegan."

Company email (November 2013):
"In fact, there are no animal products used in any of our current vintages with the only exception being our 2011 Essential Red. Egg whites were used in the fining process, however no trace is left after repeated filtering and final bottling. So feel free to enjoy the wines as you have in the past, perhaps just avoiding the Essential Red."

Company email:
"Bogle winemakers use several products in the production of our wines, including gelatin and egg whites. These are classic and standard materials used in the making of most wines in California today."
