Company email (October 2018) re Red Theory Wines:
"Unfortunately, our wines like most wines are produced in facilities that practice non-vegan friendly methods. A good amount of our fining methods use animal byproducts so we cannot guarantee that any of our wines are completely vegan."

Company email (July 2016) re: Provisions:
"Provisions wines are not vegan. Though we do not use egg fining or other practices in the wine-making process of some varietals, all Provisions wines are produced in a facility that is not vegan-certified or regulated as such." [Note: sometimes this means that they're just being overly cautious, but as all other Precept brands are non-vegan we'll go with the red for now]

Company email (March 2015):
"Most of their wines use egg white to remove tannins in their red wine."

Company email (October 2014): re: Radius Wines
"Our wines do contain animal byproducts (eggs) acquired during the fining process."

Company email (December 2013): re: Chocolate Shop Wines
"For the most part we do not use any animal bi-products in the fining of our wines but I cannot 100% guarantee that they are completely vegan friendly. I know that isn't that helpful. If we do use anything it would be egg whites."

Company email (September 2011):
"Unfortunately we cannot 100% guarantee that a wine is vegan. For most of our wines we do not use any animal ingredients during the fining process but there is no way to know 100% that we didn’t for Chocolate Shop. Also, we do use chocolate extract so there may be animal ingredients in the chocolate as well."

Company email: Re: Rainier Ridge via parent company Precept Brands:
"All of our Washington wines except for Waterbrook are vegan friendly. Some Waterbrook wines use egg whites as a fining agent."

Update: June 2009
"Any of our value wine should fit the bill for you – we use Bentonite and diatomaceous earth for fining and stabilizing, both are mineral products." (Then listed all wines which are marked as vegan-friendly)
