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.

Poulton Hill EstatePart of an exciting movement of English winemakers, Poulton Hill Estate was founded in 2010 and is situated in the idyllic Cotswold countryside, near the Roman town of Cirencester and Regency spa town of Cheltenham. There, 8,800 vines have been planted on the warm and sunny south-facing slopes of Poulton Hill Estate. Environmental awareness is a responsibility they take seriously, from the sheep that graze the orchard to the wildflowers they plant to help their insect population. They are home to two flocks or rare-breed sheep, Jacob’s Sheep and Olde English Babydoll Southdown Sheep, perfect for keeping the area around the vines tidy without nibbling the grapes – and they fertilize the soil as they graze.
