I would like to purchase some vegan wine. I found this: <a href="http://www.ecowine.com/" target="_blank">http://www.ecowine.com/</a><br><br><br><br>
Seems a bit expensive to me.<br><br><br><br>
Anyone know where to get less expensive vegan wine. (I live in NM)<br><br><br><br>
Thanks.

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

<div class="quote-block">Wine is clarified, or cleared, after fermentation. Some of the ingredients used include:<br><br><br><br>
- edible gelatins (made from bones)<br><br>
- isinglass (made from the swim bladders of fish)<br><br>
- casein and potassium caseinate (milk proteins)<br><br>
- animal albumin (egg albumin and dried blood powder)<br></div>

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

It's the <b>in</b> wine part.<br><br><br><br>
It isn't in the wine, but used in the process.<br><br><br><br>
There are more items that are not generally known.<br><br><br><br>
Like Vitamin D3, thats animal origin too. And (in my country) used in vegetable margarine.

Call me the antipurist if you will.<br><br><br><br>
The wine I like, is the wine in my glass. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
I will read your list, and I'll favor those beers I remember. But that's where I draw a line.<br><br><br><br>
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.<br><br><br><br>
I know which beers that are available in New Zealand (local and imported) are vegan, and fortunately they were/are my favourite beers anyway <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
Glad you found the list useful mushroom.
