Company email (May 2021)
"Our Director of Decoy Winemaking, Tyson Wolf confidently reports that he uses no traditional allergens or animal products during winemaking."

Company email (April 2019)
"Because traditional winemaking practices may include procedures considered non-vegan, we can’t confirm or deny that any given bottle of wine is completely vegan." [Note, we're leaving the 5 entries from 2009/2010/2015 as vegan-friendly based on the specific info given below.]

Company email (July 2017)
"I have been vegan for five years myself, and I enjoy all of our wines."

Company email (February 2015):
"I can’t say for sure on any library or older vintage wines, but anything starting in 2011 to current is vegan-friendly. We do all of our own bottling in house, so no worries in that regard either."

Company email, March 2012:
"Unfortunately, we cannot say that our wines are vegan free" [Note, we're leaving the 4 wines from 2009/2010 as vegan-friendly based on the specific info given below.]

Company email (July 2011):
"I checked with our winemaking team and please find listed below their remarks:
"None of the 2009 bordeaux reds or 2010 SB were fined"
"The Zinfandel was not fined."
Our product is not produced anywhere else in the world, only in California."

Company email (July 2011):
Our winemaking team responded to my e-mail as follows:
"We sometimes fine our wines with egg products, so I would have to know which Decoy vintage & varietal they are referring to."

Company Email:
"Yes, we do from time to time use an egg albumen product to fine some of our wines. This is not a standard practice but is something we have used sporadically in the past."
