From their blog (http://www.josefchromy.com.au/blog/vegan-friendly-wines, pulled Nov 4 2016):
"Over the past two years, Josef Chromy Wines have used a new means of clarifying some wines that involves a very small amount of gelatine (30-40 ppm), but yields massive savings in energy use. This means most of our aromatic whites are not vegan-friendly. Trials are underway with plant-derived gels instead of gelatine, but have been unsatisfactory so far.

Our Chardonnay doesn't go through this process, but in some years we use casein (milk product), and this rules out those particular vintages too.

Our Pinot Noirs - Pepik, Josef Chromy and Zdar - are vegan-friendly year in, year out.

The following current release wines ARE vegan-friendly:

2015 Pepik Pinot Noir
2015 Josef Chromy Pinot Noir
2015 Josef Chromy Chardonnay
2015 Josef Chromy Fume Blanc
2010 Josef Chromy Vintage Sparkling
Josef Chromy Ruby Pinot (port)
2012 Zdar Chardonnay
2012 Zdar Pinot Noir
2005 Zdar Sparkling
2014 Josef Chromy Merlot"
