Not Vegan Friendly
Company email (July 2012):
"We do not recommend any of our wines 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."
"I asked our winemaker about the white wines specifically. We may use either the egg whites or the isinglass for the whites, depending on which the winemaker feels will best meet the needs for the finished product. "
"Our red wines are fined with egg whites. Low levels, but we do use this protein derived from chicken eggs. "
