Best Vegan Wines
Traditionally, tiny particles of sediment in a wine that cannot be removed by filtration were removed by using egg whites or casein (a protein found in milk) along with other animal-derived fining agents that include bone marrow and fish oil.
Vegan wines are wines that are made without animal products. The winemakers either leave the particles to sink naturally to the bottom of the wine, or use non-animal fining products usually bentonite, a form of clay or pea protein.
