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 - Weingut Schnaitmann
Rainer Schnaitmann has been producing wines since 1997 under his own label. His influences stem from strong training at the renowned Geisenheim school, and vineyard work in New Zealand and Alto Adige - and what a marvel he’s made of the Lemberger (Blaufränkisch)! He’s based in the village of Fellbach, in the lesser known wine region of Württemberg near the major industrial city of Stuttgart. The ‘Steinwiege’ wines exhibit their terroir and grape variety, with great definition and purity. His most famous vineyard is the Fellbacher Lämmler, the top wines are designated ‘Fellbacher Lämmler’, where almond trees were formerly planted. His winemaking is fully biological, although Rainer hasn’t shown an interest in organic certification.
