Vegan Wine is becoming increasingly sought after but it can be hard to find. Small production American wines are a great option for vegan wine, because not only do they use vegan friendly methods and products, they are also high quality and environmentally friendly.
American wine has come a long way in recent years, and today there are many excellent vegan options available, made using only plant-based ingredients.
While veganism is a relatively new concept (in wine terms), it has been present in wine production for centuries. In fact, there are records of ancient civilisations making vegan wine. The Roman writer Pliny the Elder even wrote about vegetarian and vegan wines in his Natural History.
There is an increasing demand for American vegan wine and in fact, this market for is growing at a faster rate than the wine market as a whole.
As the demand for vegan wine grows, so do the number of wineries producing it. In recent years, there has been an increase in the number of small production vegan wines being made in the United States , and small producers are developing some extraordinary examples.
These wines are typically produced by family-owned wineries and use sustainable practices. Many of these wineries are located in California, but there are also a growing number in Oregon and Washington State.
The majority of American vegan wines are made from traditional grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. However, there is also a growing trend towards using alternative grape varieties such as Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc. This is in line with the trend towards natural and sustainable viticulture practices.
