Sydney notes (July 2015)" (Bodacious Red Wine)
"Just wanted to let you know that I contacted the number (1-877-919-7587) on the back of Bodacious Red Wine made in Niagra Falls, Ontario, Canada and inquired about their fining process. They informed me that they do NOT consider their wines vegan because they do sometimes use animal products."

"Fining agents are used on a lot-by-lot basis to optimize the quality. Some fining agents contain proteinaceous materials. Proteinaceous fining agents are used to react with color and/or tannin molecules to make them removable by subsequent filtration. Both the fining agent, the color and/or tannin it reacts with are removed by the filtration process."

Note from Colleen (October 2010) re: Black Velvet
"I e-mailed Constellation Brands, the makers of Black Velvet. A representative called me via telephone the next day (!) to confirm that Black Velvet is indeed vegan…the only “animal” it has in it is yeast lol."
