Vegan wines do not use any animal products in the winemaking process.
One step in the production of wine often includes a process called fining (or “clarifying”). The fining process requires a fining agent to be suspended into the vat where it will later be filtered out of the wine. Fining agents are typically either animal,carbon or clay-based products and are used to gather proteins or sediment within the wine to adjust impurities such as color, haziness, taste and/ or smell. Animal-based fining agents include gelatin,isinglass,egg whites(albumen), and casein.
