"Our white wines in current circulation are entirely vegan. The use of animal derived products in the wine industry is largely to remove tannin, which is not (usually) a problem in white wine production (intead we fine with bentonite - a form of clay - to remove protein).

"Of the reds you listed, it goes on a case by case basis if we need to fine for tannins. The 2013 Amici Pinot Noir Reserve is the only one you listed I know for sure to be vegan. It was lightly fined with yeast proteins (Fungii derived) only. The other two were include lots that were fined with egg white protein."
