"I have been asked this before and unfortunately we cannot guarantee a vegan wine. We do use a combination of the products you mentioned below in our fining. It will vary vintage to vintage, wine to wine, but we do not always have this info to hand. Best to not consider us vegan."

Company email:
"Thank you for contacting us about our the Little Penguin wines. We do not recommend any of our wine for vegetarians or vegans due to the possibility that the wine has been clarified with fining agents such as egg albumin, casein, gelatin and isinglass. The winemakers decide on which fining agents are used and these may vary from product to product and even batch to batch (usually depending on the grapes of that particular year). It is important to note that despite fining agents being used during the winemaking process, they are removed prior to bottling. In Addition, all of our wines are gluten free and the products we use to make our wines, such as yeast, fining agents, filters and barrels are also gluten free."
