Company email (August 2018)
"At this time, all but one of our wines is vegan-friendly. The only one that we cannot guarantee is our Chardonnay Champagne as that is made off-site so we’re not comfortable calling it vegan.

"The rest of our wines are all made with practices and ingredients that are both animal- and planet-friendly. As the winery’s resident vegan (vegetarian since 1995 and vegan since 2007), I can assure you that our wines, with the exception of the Chardonnay Champagne, are 100% vegan."

Company email (October 2011):

From Andy Marshall, Assistant Marketing Director... "Thanks for contacting us! I’m actually a vegan and one of the things I was most excited about when I started working here in 2006 was how many of the wines were made without the use of animal products and how receptive the winemaking staff was to trying to cut down even more on how many were. We maintain a special section of our website that only lists our vegan wines: On that page you will also find a link to a chart that details which wines are made with and without animal products. If the wine does contain any animal products, it is listed specifically on that chart. Only one wine is made outside our facility, our Chardonnay Champagne, and we are unsure if any animal products are used in its production and consequently do not list it as a vegan-friendly wine."

I'm writing to let you know that the wines at Hunt Country Vineyards, located in Upstate NY, are vegan (with only a couple exceptions, I'm still working on those ones). I've been working at Hunt Country since 2006 and have been asking them ever since to make their wines vegan and we finally got there with the last two vintages - 2006 & 2007!.
