"The fining agent used for Manischewitz wine is called Agar Agar which is a seaweed derivative."
Our Kosher for Passover wines, as well as all Manischewitz wines, are made without animal-based fining agents. Instead, Manischewitz wines are made with fining agent derived from diatomaceous earth.
Fining agents are used by the winemaker to optimize wine quality. Some fining agents contain proteinaceous materials or other materials that 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.
All of our fining agents are approved by the Alcohol & Tobacco Tax & Trade Bureau (TTB, formerly the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms)
