Company email (October 2020)

"Any product that we produce that is labelled VQA and made from 100% Ontario grown grapes will not have come into any contact with animal products during production. [This includes Trius]"

Company email (January 2016):
"Most of our VQA wines are filtered using diatomaceous earth (a naturally occurring, soft, siliceous sedimentary rock) or through mechanical means that would be considered vegan. We do not use any animal products to treat and/or filter non-VQA wine at our facility; however, we cannot ‘certify’ that incoming import wine has not had contact with animal products such as egg whites or fish derived agents, while it is very unlikely."

Company email (August 2013):
"As a rule we try not to use any animal products but have been know to use some as fining agents from time to time (depending on the season) at Trius. VQA prohibits the making of any Trius wines outside Ontario."
