Did you know that most wines are vegan? However, some of them are made using animal-derived substances during the filtering process, called “fining agents.” These filters sometimes include gelatin from fish bladders (called isinglass), casein (derived from milk), or bone marrow. Yuck! Thankfully, several common fining agents used to make wine are animal-friendly, which means that your local grocery, health-food, or liquor store and online retailers are overflowing with vegan wine options. Here’s a taste of some of our favorite vegan wines, all available in stores or online.

Cheers to vegan wine!

Stella Rosa

These Stella Rosa options are vegan: Black, Red, Berry, Rosé, Peach, Pink, Green Apple, Platinum French Vanilla, Moscato, Tropical Mango, Prosecco, Black Lux, Pearl Lux, Pearl Lux Rosé, Orange Moscato, Pineapple, Watermelon, and Ruby Rosé Grapefruit.

Bellissima Prosecco

Christie Brinkley’s line of 100% organic Prosecco and sparkling wines is made from grapes grown in Treviso, Italy. Her eco approach continues all the way to the wine’s packaging, which uses organic ink and environmentally friendly materials.

The following options of this widely available brand are vegan: chenin blanc (South Africa, 2007), cabernet sauvignon (Chile, 2007), Blossom Hill Signature Blend White (U.S., 2006), and shiraz (South Africa, 2007).

(Bonus tip: If you ever find yourself at the winery’s tasting room in Paso Robles, California, note that you’re vegan—the winery offers off-menu vegan snacks that are worth asking for!)
