[regarding Tribuno Vermouth] "I just heard back from our Vermouth winemaker. No, none of these materials used in or during the process of making these products."

Company email (November 2011):
"Our products do not contain any animal products at bottling. Some commercially produced base wines are treated with milk fining or gelatin in rare instances during processing, however to the best of our knowledge none of these products remain in the wine after processing."

Company email (October 2011):
"We do not use any in our wine processing! Cheers!"

Barnivore Editor's note: May 2011
Since the first email sounded like they aren't vegan friendly and the first check they weren't vegan friendly. We sent a follow up to triple check... and have yet to hear back. If you are interested in this wine, please send them an email, then forward us the correspondence."

Company reply: July 2010
"No we do not use them."

MJ's reply:
"I am not sure I understand your answer; do you use the milk / gelatin /other animal base products during processing?."
