Vegan wines are a type of wine that arises to meet the demand for a lifestyle that rejects the use of goods and services that come from animal origin, based on ethical principles of respect for animals, environmental principles and health.
But one wonders, if wine is produced from grapes, if the field is mostly mechanised, if ageing is done in wooden vats, in amphorae, in bottles, then where are the animal products added to the wine? Or what animal products are used in winemaking?
The answer is to be found in the wine clarification process, which is carried out before bottling in order to remove natural substances from the wine that are in suspension and give it a cloudy colour, something that is not usually pleasant to the eye.
With this clarification, the wines are clean and bright.
The issue is that the products used for this clarification are traditionally of animal origin (egg white, bone gelatine, etc.) and some wineries, in order to meet the needs of the vegan market, have started to use vegetable proteins from potatoes, peas, among others, for this clarification or even some wines are not clarified with any type of product (in this case the wine will not have a clean and bright presence as the clarified ones do).
Nowadays, most vegan wines come from certified organic vineyards in accordance with the principle of respect for the environment.
