If you thought all wines were vegan, then think again! You might be surprised to learn what some of our competitors put in their products. Rest assured that Oceano Wines are certified vegan. We underwent a rigorous examination process so that you can pour a glass responsibly and ethically. We’ve even cooked up some scrumptious vegan meals to pair with our vegan wines.
Wine is so much more than “just grapes”. Crafting wine is an art form that vintners spend years developing, and it is understandable that they do not wish to disclose their ingredients and processes. Unfortunately, this also means that non-vegan processes are not always disclosed. Many are stunned to learn that animal based products, such as insect-based dyes, bone char, and fish bladder, may be used in the wine making process. The glue that holds the label to the bottle might be an animal-based product. There is only one way to be 100% certain the wine you are drinking is truly vegan: BeVeg certification.
BeVeg is the global leader in vegan certification. BeVeg is the only organization that is ISO accredited as a published vegan standard. While others may throw the term “vegan” around, if you don’t see the BeVeg Certification then you can’t be sure it is. BeVeg is their vegan alcohol certification program. The BeVeg certification on the bottle assures you that the wine has been analyzed from the ground to the bottling process to ensure that animals are not used in any way at all.
“We value the BeVeg vegan alcohol certification because we feel that it is important for people to know if animals are used in any way to produce the products that they consume. Since wine is made from grapes, people assume that animals have not been part of the process of grape growing or winemaking, which in some cases is not true.”
At Oceano, we want our focus to be on the fruit. We never use animal byproducts. Our vineyards are fertilized with green compost, and we only work with vegan suppliers. Our wine is safe and certified by BeVeg to be vegan compliant.
