Company email (May 2023)
"Etude eliminated use of animal-based fining agents several years ago."

Company email (January 2019)
"Fining agents that are used across our brand are: egg albumin, casein, gelatin, and isinglass."

Company email (August 2011):
"However we do not recommend any of our wine for vegans due to the possibility that the wine has been clarified with fining agents such as egg albumin, casein, gelatin and isinglass.

Fining agents are used to reduce harsh tannin and remove several kinds of hazes that can be found in wine. In using these agents the winemaker is further fine-tuning the structure of the wine. The use of small amounts of fining agents is generally necessary to ensure that the wine will be clear, stable and sound, have longevity and be enjoyable to taste.

The winemakers decide on which fining agents are used and these may vary from product to product and even batch to batch (usually depending on the grapes of that particular year). It is important to note that despite fining agents being used during the wine making process, they are removed prior to bottling."
