Vegan Holiday Wine Guide 2020
You can’t ring in 2021 with any old riesling or chardonnay. Those aren’t just a bunch of grapes. Some wines contain all sorts of non-vegan ingredients. To learn if that pinot gris you’re cheersing with is 100% plant-based, read on. Choose one of these 13 vegan wines to help you ring in the new year!
This brand takes the concept of clean wine seriously with it’s eco-friendly bottles and environmentally-conscious shipping methods as well as its hands-off approach to the winemaking process. You’ll enjoy a low carb, low sugar, keto-friendly wine from a wellness-oriented vegan brand.
With Obvious Wines, there’s no need to sniff your pinot noir while gently swirling the glass, pretending you know anything about floral notes, the bouquet, or a smooth finish. Rich & Oaky, French & Bubbly, Bright & Crisp, and Dark & Bold are just a few of the wines to choose from at this “keep it simple” company.
Wine in a can? Count us in! Organic, sustainable, and gluten-free, because “drink responsibly.” Choose from All Day Rosé (a refreshing—wait for it—rosé) or Just Right White (a tasty blend between sweet and dry). According to the company’s super formally-tested findings, Besa pairs well with “Boozy Jenga, dark chocolate and PJ’s, and bubble baths.”
Staying home for a little Netflix and … cheersing? Check out this online vegan wine club (wine drinking doesn’t end when the new year’s rung in!). Vegan Wines sources a good amount of product from independent, family-owned businesses and provides a nice selection of organic wines.
Angeleno Wine Co. offers a selection of whites and reds with names that pay homage to the Los Angeles area.

Angeleno Wine Co. is pet and family friendly.
Celebrating on a budget? Ring in the new year with some “Two-Buck Chuck.” For you lovers of reds, Trader Joe’s offers its $1.99 Charles Shaw cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, and merlot in vegan-friendly form. While you’re there, pick up some snackage for that New Year’s Eve bash you’ve got planned.
