Drinking Vegan

Vegan wines are wines that are produced without the use of any animal-derived ingredients or processes. Traditional winemaking often involves the use of animal-derived fining agents, such as egg whites, gelatin, or isinglass (made from fish bladder), to clarify and stabilize the wine. However, in the production of vegan wines, these animal products are avoided. 

Instead, vegan winemakers use alternative fining agents like bentonite clay, activated charcoal, or various plant-based options to achieve the same clarity and stability in the wine without animal byproducts. This approach aligns with the principles of veganism, which seek to avoid the use of animals for food, clothing, or any other purpose. 

Greece has been farming organically by generational traditions for thousands of years and producing wines with minimal intervention.  They are no strangers to organic farming and biodynamic production.  And now they have also been filtering wine without animal bi-products for many years.  

Some wines to consider that are vegan friendly can be found on our Greekazon platform:

So, in summary, vegan wines are wines made without the use of animal-derived substances in the winemaking process, making them suitable for those who adhere to a vegan lifestyle.
