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.
Wine Shop - Vegan wines - Querciabella
Querciabella is one of the producers we really champion here at Honest Grapes. Giuseppe Castiglioni, an industrial entrepreneur and lifelong wine lover purchased a single hectare of vineyard on a Tuscan hillside and set about creating an estate soon spanning the breadth of the region. Querciabella's philosophy is to create extraordinary wines, without causing harm or disrupting the delicate balance of nature. With 69 hectares of vineyard in the prime Chianti Classico region, located in the communes of Greve, Radda and Gaiole their vineyards represent the largest extension of Biodynamically farmed vineyards in Italy. Querciabella lay claim to the rich Biodynamic soil and say it has become the single most important ingredient in their award-winning recipe.
