No problem! I love looking up information. It was a great question because now I know how to answer it if customers come in and ask. I'm better informed myself. Thanks for asking that question :)

Unfortunately I don't know much about Vegan friendly wine. :(

 

But I did find a great list of wines available in Canada. It shows which is Vegan friendly and which isn't.

 

http://www.barnivore.com/wine?region=Canada

 

I did take a look at this list. I found that Inniskillin is Vegan friendly. They make a wonderful Riesling Gewurztraminer, Pinot Grigio and Pino Noir. I definitely recommended trying any one of these. 

 

The website itself is a great guide for beer, spirits, and liquor. :) Hope this helps a little bit.

I recently started working at a wine store. I was absolutely in love with wine before working there but now I have a new appreciation for it. I love white wine and especially love Canadian wines like Inniskilin and Jackson Triggs. Two great local wine makers from Ontario.

Acheron I'm going through a Riesling phase at the moment, been buying one by Corbans (Australian wine) which is made from South African grapes.



Being a white it goes with a lot of veggie dishes, especially stir fry!

Then after about a year I went to dryer whites like Viogner, Pinot G, and Chardonneys.

Now I am at Red wines. I love them, but they are an acquired taste and over time you learn to love them if you don't at first. I am stuck on Meritage which is a blend of 3 grapes. It is fantastic. Some dark choc or a choc fondue would go great with this wine or any red wine.

Now I want a glass!



Northern Virginia, eh? I didn't know there was a big wine producing region there... Being on the Canadian West coast, we hear a lot more about Cali obviously, Washington and Oregon wines. I love all the varietals you've mentioned (as long as the chard is unoaked). Mmm, meritage. I haven't had one for awhile. Have you started exploring Pinot Noirs yet?

Arbre Anyone else here up for Moscato D'Asti's?



I have two favorites:

Centive and Saracco. Both are sweet with a fruity background with a touch of carbonation. Nice thing about them is that they have a low alcohol content but still maintain the full flavor because of the carbonation.



Edit: Good lord... I think am a snob... I cannot find a bottle in the house that does not have a Denominazione di origine controllata label on it... sad.

Rigor mortis I am astonished that in 16 pages, no one has mentioned this humble glory...



These grapes were grown from the soil which John Lennon was laid to rest and crushed by the rosy, plump feet of feather-light cherubs from the sweetest of valentine's days. The wine was fermented in the deep catacombs of the Montresor family and corked by Fortunato himself. Crimson deep like the elegant haze of a hydrogen nebular of such beauty that Carl Sagan would cry. You could describe the experience of taste to that of a polmegranate--and if there is any bitterness detected, then it is comparable to that of a lovesick Romeo. That is what cheese is for, my friends. The very scent will intoxicate the heavyweight Ivan Drago on the spot.



I will never forget the Merlot that was Charles Shaw, the very first drink I ever got smashed drunk on.



And it was only USD$2 per bottle.







Edit: Well, not everyone is a lacto-vegetarian, so not everyone has the benefit of cheese. =(



I also know that John Lennon was cremated.

Alicia Avocado I love Chilean Malbec (ultimate favourite) but I also love a lot of the local wines here....I'm fortunate enough to live in wine country! There is a new inexpensive one that I like by Blasted Church, it's a chardonnay I believe.

Nishani I gave up drinking alcohol a while back but I've just started drinking red again. Bad, bad, bad woman! *slaps own face* The parents of a friend of mine own a winery so unfortunately the freebies are sitting in the kitchen winking at me every night. Just saying no to free Aussie Cab Sav when one comes home from work a little stressed out is not an easy task. LOL

Mental Symphony I've never been a big fan of wine (tends to trigger migraines), but I do like a good shiraz/syrah occasionally. Especially with dark chocolate.

dontsurrender As the weather gets colder here I am rekindling my relationship once again with red wine. Never was much of a white wine drinker but went that route this Spring and Summer but Fall is here and red wine is back.



I really like shiraz and have found that the "smiley face' California shiraz is great. It's $6/$7 and is an enjoyable bottle. It's my current staple wine and friendly on the pocket book. Anyone have any other recommendations for bold/spicy wines (shiraz/syrah, grenache)?

emmjay88 without sounding dense, what sort of ingredients would you look for in wine that would scream 'not veggie' ?? i'm a rosé fan and new to veggie life !



I know a lot of things should state if they are suitable for veggies but a lot of things i find don't say.. i'm forever on google searching only to eventually discover that they are suitable ! it's crazy.. or they make the sign so small i'm stood there for ages looking like a loon.



thanks guys

kittenkites I'm all about the bang for my buck.. I'm a connoisseur of box wine.. yah poor broke ass girl from the east coast.. but I'm wholly devoted to Bota Box Chardonnay. It's a great dry white, 3 liters for $15, and the box is recyclable!

mattthr For those interested in matching vegetarian food and wine, you might find this an interesting read:

http://www.wine-lovers-page.com/veggie.shtml



If anyone wants tasting notes, I can supply very many I'm no wine expert, but I take it just about seriously enough to call it a "hobby". One thing I *don't* do is regularly check whether wines are vegetarian - it's often extremely difficult to find out, especially when you're buying wines from relatively small producers. I take comfort in the knowledge that outside of Germany and the USA, apparently relatively few wines are not vegetarian. I was however, very appreciative when my local wine specialist started listing the vegetarian-ness or otherwise of their wines.

I was doing my own thing quietly and YOU are the one who created this post trying to make a big deal out of it. Keep flaming the fire. That must be what you want.

ohsoveggie Hi...I'm so new here forgive me if I am posting where I shouldn't!! I LOVE my red wines, and find that I almost always finish the bottle I start the same night, so the new screw caps that have shown up on my favorite "Our Daily Red" aren't really an issue. I found a fantastic website ... www.barnivore.com that tells you if the alcohol you are drinking is vegan. This is important to me....I didn't realize that egg whites and fish bladders are using in wine processing by some vineyards. Thought I'd just throw that out there for those who are interested....

peace,

Jana

112inky There is a Chilean merlot that I really like. In general, I prefer reds. If its white, I like 'em dry! Great idea for a thread. I'm looking forward to ideas about pairing!

ashlend My H and I just spent this afternoon re-inventorying our wine collection. We have a program on our computers called Uncorked that allows us to keep track of all kinds of information about our wines -- winery, vintage, best drinking period, tasting notes, location in our cellar, etc. We had everything in there for a while, but then we moved a few months ago so we had to redo it. We did about half our collection today and then we got tired. We'll finish the rest tomorrow.



Realization of the day: I need to buy more Italian wines. We eat so much Italian food, and I really like simple Italian wine with it -- Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, Barbera, Dolcetto, that kind of thing.

Princess78 I just tried a Pinot Noir I really like.It's Barton & Guestier Bistro wine 2005.
