Note from Danielle (February 2014):
"I thought she meant that all vintages of the LBV and 40 YO Tawny were suitable, but she meant that all of the Vintages (Classic Fonseca Vintage, Fonseca Guimaraens and Fonseca Quinta do Panascal Single Quinta Vintage), and the LBV and 40YOT. I had been thinking that by vintages she was referring to years, as is the case with wines."

Company email (February 2014):
Q: "I'm a little confused as another person who contacted Fonseca was told that the vintage ports (Classic Fonseca Vintage, Fonseca Guimaraens and Fonseca Quinta do Panascal Single Quinta Vintage) were also suitable for vegans. Is this not the case? They were also told that the wines are not suitable as they're fined with gelatine but I was under the impression that all Fonseca wines were suitable. If you could help clear this up for me, I'd really appreciate it!"
A: "In my first email dated 16 July I wrote “Vegan Friendly Fonseca wines are all vintages, Fonseca unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage and Fonseca 40 year old tawny..” I do apologise for not having insisted that vintages are also suitable.

Not all Fonseca wines are suitable. Fonseca has a greater range of wines which are not suitable for vegans."

Company email (February 2014):
Q: "I just wanted to check whether the Fonseca LBV and Fonseca 40 Year Old Tawny were still the only vegan suitable ports available from Fonseca?"
A: "Yes this is still correct."

Company email (February 2014):
"Vegan Friendly Fonseca wines are all vintages, Fonseca unfiltered Late Bottled Vintage and Fonseca 40 year old tawny."

Company email (August 2012):
"The only products which are 100% suitable for vegans are all our Vintage Ports which include Classic Fonseca Vintage, Fonseca Guimaraens and Fonseca Quinta do Panascal Single Quinta Vintage. Our Late Bottled Vintage Port and 40 Year OId Aged Tawny Port are also suitable.

All other Fonseca wines include products that are not suitable for vegetarians, such as gelatin."
