I would like to purchase some vegan wine. I found this: http://www.ecowine.com/



Seems a bit expensive to me.



Anyone know where to get less expensive vegan wine. (I live in NM)



Thanks.

I'm singin' here to get rid of fear
Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way

They say they have a list of vegan wines, but I can't find it ?



These wines cost more because they are organic.

I didn't realize there were animal products in wine... always thought it was just fermented grapes. Shows how much I know. What animal products do they use?

Wine is clarified, or cleared, after fermentation. Some of the ingredients used include:



- edible gelatins (made from bones)

- isinglass (made from the swim bladders of fish)

- casein and potassium caseinate (milk proteins)

- animal albumin (egg albumin and dried blood powder)

SharkbarkBE, it's safer to assume animal products are in ALL processed foods and then work backwards...

It's the in wine part.



It isn't in the wine, but used in the process.



There are more items that are not generally known.



Like Vitamin D3, thats animal origin too. And (in my country) used in vegetable margarine.

Call me the antipurist if you will.



The wine I like, is the wine in my glass.



I think it's a good idea to be as vegan as possible, but I don't usually pay attention when it comes to wine. Most (if not all) nonvegan wine filters are byproducts and are not the cause of animal death or suffering.



If I were to see a wine that was clearly labeled "Vegan," I would favor it. If I were to be at a party and be offered wine, I would drink it. And If I were to see in a list of ingrediants on wine a nonvegan ingrediant, I would probably choose not to drink it.



When it comes to beer, I avoid Guinness (because it seems to be the only I remember as being not vegan), and I almost always drink microbrews, which are vegan much more often than not (I've heard).

Well, it's not a major concern of mine as I'm not Vegan (yet). I don't even drink alcohol, for that matter. I was just curious as to what animal products might go into something like wine.

I totally agree that drinking vegan beer is much much much better than drinking non-vegan beer, but don't you think that a list dictating your diet is quite insane? It's too much work, and quite frankly, I really don't feel that's it's doing any animal any peace of mind by a purist. It's best to do the most and by doing the simplest amounts that you can. Such simple activities can add up to 90% of what you can do before you even think about it.



I will read your list, and I'll favor those beers I remember. But that's where I draw a line.



I think that is by far good enough.

Ah yes. This is mikie's state of mind. I quite agree. Mikie's right. Do the most you can, but insanity does nothing but harm. Simplicity is key to life.

mikie I don't carry that list around with me (nor was I asking you to let alone memorise it, just thought you might find it useful in someway) , largely because New Zealand doesn't sell a fair whack of those beers listed above.



I know which beers that are available in New Zealand (local and imported) are vegan, and fortunately they were/are my favourite beers anyway



Glad you found the list useful mushroom.
