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!

Wonderful Wine Co

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.

Obvious Wines

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.

Besa

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.”
