Vegan wine from London
One part of learning to live vegan that comes as a surprise to a lot of people is needing to shop carefully for wine.
Yes, that’s correct. Wine is often not suitable for vegans.
Animal derived products such as egg albumen, casein and isinglass are used as fining agents to clarify the wine before bottling.
But there are more and more vegan-suitable wines hitting shelves all the time, including this boutique brand from London!
Forty Hall Vineyard makes a few varieties, including this Brut they are selling and shipping in time for Valentine’s Day.
A little about the vineyard:
