Top 10 Veganuary wines - Vegan Wines

January has now become Veganuary, and many of us are more conscious about what we eat. And drink.

What is "ORGANIC" wine?  Wine made from grapes grown without any artificial chemicals (ie pesticides, herbicides, fungicides).  There are various bodies who certify wine, with different standards and logos, eg. Vin Bio, EcoCert. 

“BIODYNAMIC” is a step above organic. Grapes are grown without any artificial chemicals, and also the land is farmed according to biodynamic principles laid down by Rudolf Steiner. Biodynamic farms carry out composting, integrating animals, cover cropping, and crop rotation, and many also farm according to the cycles of the moon. It's all good stuff, like your grandad used to do! 

“VEGAN” friendly wines. Animal by-products (eg isinglass, egg white) are used primarily for fining small particles  from wine. 'Vegan' wines use non-animal products to do this.  

 

  1. Perlage Organic Pinot Grigio from Italy 
  2. La Mesma Gavi - Italian organic white made by three sisters who farm their land organically. 
  3. Quedate Organic Verdejo from Spain. If you like Sauvignon Blanc, try this. 
  4. Baglietti Vino Spumante Rosé No. 7 - certified organic
  5. Fascino Organic prosecco - certified organic
  6. Whispering Angel Rose - biodynamic
  7. Dom Notre Dame Visan Côtes du Rhône Villages - Certified organic red.  
  8. Domaine Mejan Lirac, another certified organic red. 
  9. Matsu El Recio - organic red from Spain, farmed biodynamically, and not filtered at all!
