Company email (April 2013):
"Please see the below response from one of our Winemakers: Tim Adams.

In the Astrolabe range the only wine that has had any animal product near it is the Pinot Noir, egg white, but it is sterile filtered( 0.45 micron) so in reality there is no animal left in it.

All the whites are unfined and suitable for vegans, vegetarians, pescitarians(fish only) etc.

Durvillea only the SB and PG are suitable.

Please bear in mind that when the grapes are harvested there is a risk of meat contamination as there are insects and occasionally birds, mice or lizards in the fruit.
