Finding vegan food you can actually enjoy can be a challenge. Luckily, you have nothing to fear when it comes to whether or not you should drink wine. Not only are there so many vegan wine options (opens in new tab) available on the market right now, so many of them are actually affordable and easy to find. Plus, there are tons of resources that search for the best vegan-friendly alcohol alternatives.
Luckily, there is help out there. Sites like Barnivore (opens in new tab) have an encyclopedic knowledge of which spirits, beers, and wines are suitable for vegan eaters—and drinkers. All you have to do is search the name of your preferred drink and it will let you know, clear as day, whether or not you can drink it, no hassle required. From reds to whites to even a few roses, there are plenty to choose from, and so many are readily available at your local grocery store. It lets you know the year that the site certified it vegan, who they spoke with at the company, and when those conversations occurred. In most cases, it even supplies information about how to contact the vineyard or brand if you want further clarification. Below, we’ve rounded up our favorite vegan wines for you to sip on right now. Grab a corkscrew and say goodbye to scanning endless ingredient lists — we’ve got you covered.
Every Layer Cake wine is vegan, but this one is perfect for popping on any special occasion—or just a wine night in with your girlfriends. Despite its sugary name, this wine isn't actually too sweet. Instead, it has layers of citrus flavors thanks to notes of passion fruit, and pink grapefruit. The fruitiness is topped with acidic notes of rhubarb and pineapple for a crisp, dry finish.
Best Budget Pick
You might move past Sutter Home in the grocery aisle, this Cabernet is actually way better than its $7 price tag would have you believe. It's actually one of the few wines in the Sutter Home range that actually is vegan-friendly, so go ahead and grab a glass.
Best for Parties
You've no doubt seen these cans all over Instagram. Not only are they super convenient to pack for a picnic or a dinner party with friends, but they're vegan friendly too. Every one of these cans has the alcohol equivalent of one entire bottle of wine. With a price that retails for just under $15 for four of them, you have no reason not to drink it.
Best for Dates
A sweeter take on red, this Cabernet Sauvignon was the first wine that Josh Cellars ever produced. It has notes of blackberry, toasted hazelnut and cinnamon. These are complemented by hints of vanilla and toasted oak for a deeper, fuller flavor. It's perfect when eating heartier meals (think: steak) so it's perfect for date night.
Best for Summer
Summer might be over, but Summer Water keeps the good energy going well into fall. Best served chilled, this rosé is made up of grapes that were picked early in the season to create natural acidity. it's completed with notes of strawberry, pink grapefruit, rose, and orange blossom for a refreshing take on the classic summer beverage.
Every wine in Red Truck's selection is certified vegan, so you're good to go with any bottle with their label on it. This classic red has base notes of blueberry and blackberry, with top notes of fresh eucalyptus and black tea for a fresh twist.
Best for Dessert
Every one of Sokol Blosser wines are vegan, but this 2016 vintage has all-American notes of fresh cherries and raspberries. Hints of baking spices and raspberries make this the perfect wine to pair with sweeter, fruitier foods.
Best for Winter
This is one of Justin Wine's best sellers for more than 25 years. It's a more full-bodied red that has hints of spice for added flavor. It's dry but complex in nature, making it perfect to drink throughout the colder months.
This rosé was designed to make you want more than few glasses. It first tastes slightly more acidic before mellowing out into a sweeter aftertaste. Certified vegan and created in small batches in Napa Valley, California from a single grape. They call it "The Vice" for a reason.
