We are proud to declare that our organic wines cater to vegetarian, vegan, and low-sodium dietary preferences.
Our commitment to an unadulterated wine experience is evident in our unfiltered and unfined red wines, including shiraz and malbec, as well as our preservative-free dessert wines. These offerings encapsulate the essence of natural winemaking.
At Harris Organic Wine, we maintain an uncompromising stance against the use of the following additives, although they are permissible under Australian legal standards. Our organic grape cultivation adheres to certified organic specifications, ensuring wines that remain untainted by herbicides, chemical fertilizers, or pesticide residues.
For enthusiasts of vegan and natural wines:
The hallmarks of natural and vegan wines are found in their unfiltered and unfined nature. Sterile filters – be they ceramic or cross-flow – are synonymous with vegan-friendly wines. This practice, however, is not universal, and larger wineries often employ these filters.
Some vintners choose bentonite clay for fining white wines, eliminating the need for animal-derived agents. The intricate practices of biodynamic winemaking, while organic, may conflict with vegan principles due to the involvement of animal-based components.
It is important to note that while a wine may be certified organic, its vegan status is not guaranteed. For definitive clarity, consulting the label or engaging with the winery is advised.
