Company email (December 2012):
"In response, while we do offer our various product lists, some products in our stores and the selections offered may actually vary somewhat by state and region. The primary reason for this is that we also attempt to source products locally whenever we can, as we also do not ship our products over really long distances. Our lists are also not all-inclusive, and are offered moreso as a guideline of possible product selections.

In response, to your inquiry regarding our possible vegan wine options, we are enclosing a list of possible vegan wine selections below:

Bonterra-Whites are vegan
Castle Rock-All are vegan
Charles Shaw-Reds are vegan *occasionally gelatin is used in the whites' refining processes, but that it is removed from the end product
Cline Cellars-All are vegan
Fetzer-Whites are vegan
Georges Dubeouf-All are vegan
Kendall Jackson-Whites are vegan
Rosenblum Cellars-All are vegan"

Company email:
"We don't use any fining agents on our red wines. However, we share bottling equipment with other wineries where our wines may come into contact with
wine bottled previous to ours.

In general, it is the white wines that are heavily fined so that they are extremely clear and appealing to the consumer, for this reason they are also higher in sulfites.

I would have to check with our winemaker who is traveling regarding our white wines, but the same bottling line situation applies to these too.

I would be careful with this if you are extremely sensitive, I suspect that this shared equipment issue could be quite prevalent and something others may not be considering."

Company email:
"Yes, our wines are "vegan friendly." Please consume with pleasure."
