In recent years, different trends have been appearing in the world of wine. Among these new wines we can find organic wines, vegan wines, wines with smart labels and ancestral wines, among others. In today’s case, we are going to shed some light on the concept of vegan wines, learning what differentiates them from traditional wines and their possible advantages or curiosities.
Among the trends for wines, one of the most outstanding in 2021 are vegan wines. Although nowadays almost all wines are vegetarian, there are those that during some of the winemaking processes have used some type of fining agent of animal origin, such as egg albumin, casein (a milk derivative) or gelatins obtained from animal cartilage (usually from fish), etc.
Due to this, a few years ago the first clarifiers were launched on the market made without any compound of animal origin, such as legumes, wheat or seaweed, which allow completing the process of obtaining wines certified with the European V-Label seal, since, as of today, in Spain, there is no clear legislation on this matter.
That said, and to conclude, it is worth noting that more and more winegrowers are joining this process, which attests that no animal-derived compounds have been used throughout the winemaking process.
