Vegan wines are simply wines made with no animal products. During the winemaking process, sediment is often removed from the wine by filtration and fining agents, some of which are made from casein, a protein found in milk. Winemakers can either choose to use plant-based fining agents, or not to at all, as is the case with some natural wines that take on an unusual cloudy appearance.
Ochota Barrels - Vegan wines
Taras and Amber Ochata conceived the idea to make super premium wines in their home of South Australia after a surfing trip along the west coast of Mexico in a Volkswagen campervan back in 2000. Taras, an Oenology graduate from Adelaide University with a wealth of experience working alongside renowned winemakers worldwide, uses his expertise to create plush, small batch, single vineyard wines from exceptional sites with a focus on flavour, texture and emotion.
