Moreover, in a statement sent to Plant Based News, winemaker Sue Daniels said: “With this new range, we’ve been able to dig deep and unearth some real wine rarities/
“We’re really excited to share these. We hope that our customers will indulge in some much-needed armchair escapism with ‘Found’ and discover new favorites along the way.”
Daniels then concluded: “There is a world of different options out there and we’ve selected some of the best!”
Why isn’t all wine vegan?
Several animal products, including gelatin, isinglass, and egg, are commonly used during the winemaking process – making many unsuitable for a vegan diet.
