As a relatively new convert to being a plant-based eater (aka a #vegan) I'll admit I've been dragging my feet in the final step of conversion - vegan wines and beer. But I'm now only buying wines that don't use animal products.
This led to my first interesting encounter with a Sommelier this weekend. It was a BYOB affair with no corkage fee (nice!). On short notice the only vegan wine I could find was a Kaiken Malbec. Normally this wouldn't be an issue, ...
... but the restaurant featured Italian cooking with chefs and staff from Italy, including the above mentioned Sommelier. He tried his best to be polite, but I could tell he was offended I brought an Argentinian wine into his establishment.
In my defense, he had never heard of 'vegan' wines before. So when I suggested that animal products are often used in the maceration process that drew a blank. That said, there are Italian vineyards who focus on organic wines ...
... many of which refuse to use animal products in the production of their wine. But Italian wine classifications do not ensure the product is vegan or organic. I'm looking forward to some taste testing of said vegan Italian wine options in the near future. /end
