Did you know that some wines aren’t plantbased? Yep, it’s true! Although we commonly think of wine as coming straight from fermented grapes, there’s often a step in wine-making that involves animal products. Many wine-makers use a process called “fining” to get rid of any unwanted ingredients in the wine– and fining usually involves adding one of four animal proteins to the wine: egg whites, gelatin, casein (which comes from milk), or isinglass (which comes from fish). But, not to fret! In the new plantbased era, there are tons of plantbased wines on the market that are made without the use of animal products.
Are you plantbased and also a wine lover? The two don’t have to be mutually exclusive! Here are 4 of the best places to find your perfect plantbased wine.
