Raise your glass to the end of the decade and the beginning of … well … lots of vegan things. But first, let’s take a look at that wine.
You don’t want to toast the start of a new year without the proper riesling or chardonnay. But it’s just a bunch of grapes, right? Wrong. To learn how to tell if that pinot gris you’re holding is vegan, read here (hint: it has something to do with egg whites and fish bladders). But we’re not here to school you on the wine-making process today. No. We’re here to fill your glass!
Choose one of these 10 vegan wines to help you ring in the new year! Cheers!
Keep your holiday toast selection simple with these award-winning 100% vegan—”right down to the ink and glue on the labels”—wines. Enjoy Proudly Vegan Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, and Rosé as well as Prosecco.

You can drink it, but you can’t describe it. With Obvious Wines, there’s no need to sniff your pinot noir while gently swirling the glass, pretending you know something about anything, babbling on 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. Supporting sustainable farming practices, Obvious makes your holiday adult beverage selection … well … obvious.
Order online by the bottle and pick up some swag while you’re there.
Wine in a can? Count us in! Organic, sustainable, and gluten-free, because … drink responsibly, right?
