Vegan and Vegetarian Wine
Good news! All Yalumba wines are now vegan and vegetarian friendly!
- All Yalumba bottled wines are vegan and vegetarian friendly as of the 2011 vintage.
- All Yalumba 2L wines are vegan and vegetarian friendly as of the 2012 vintage.
Many of our older and back vintage wines are also vegan and vegetarian friendly but a few may not be, so check the list if you have a question about any of our earlier vintages.

At Yalumba we make our wines with the least intervention possible, backed up by as much knowledge and expertise as possible. Examples of this include our now extensive and growing use of natural yeast (wild) ferments in both whites and reds and our commitment not to use animal-based fining agents. Not fining is not an excuse to make poor wines but a commitment to get it right in the vineyard and the first stages of the winemaking process.
The easy expression of this is to say we are making “vegan friendly wines”, but it goes much deeper than that.
We want to do the right thing and to work with nature. We are committed to sustainable practices, with the belief that the healthier and more biodiverse the vineyards are the better the wines will be. This includes as appropriate using organic and biodynamic practices and making the most appropriate wines from the different regions we have access to.
