Is Champagne Vegan?

  • 2 of 3

Finding out whether or not Champagne is vegan by looking at the bottle is usually not reliable. Typically the bottle will not be labeled vegan and it is not clearly stated what fining agents are used. The good news is there are vegan Champagnes out there! The popular Champagnes Moet and Chandron, as well as Dom Perignon are vegan. The website Barnivore is one source to help look up specific champagnes like these, though you should be sure to read what the company states about each product to verify the claim.

Vegan Champagnes:
Champagne Fleury
Dom Perignon
Domaine Ste. Michelle (Blanc de Blancs, Blanc de Noirs, Brut, Extra Dry and Luxe)
Korbel Natural Champagne
Moet and Chandon

Champagnes that are NOT vegan:
Freixenet Sparkling Wines
Gloria Ferrer Sparkling Wine
Harmony Wynelands Wedding Champagne
Korbel Brut and Extra Dry
Louis Roederer Champagne
Yellowglen Pink Champagne

It's not just wine and it's not just vegans - the potential ingredients listed are not vegetarian either and it is both wine and "real" beer that are affected. You can buy vegetarian wine, but as it is far from mainstream, there will be very little decent stuff available.

For God's sakes, you Puritans. In what way are you different from the old Puritans who frowned on everything. Get a life!!!

Very good info. I know someone who is (mainly) vegan, but doesn't believe that wine isn't vegan, so I can pass this info on.
