Wine Additives

We do not use unnatural wine additives in our organic wines and that's why we make the best organic wine.


Our wines are suitable for vegetarians, vegans and low sodium diets.

Our red wine shiraz and malbec and preservative free dessert natural wines are un-fined and unfiltered, providing you with an organic wine as natural as possible.

At Harris Organic Wine we do not add ANY of the following additives listed below to our organic wine although they are legal additives commonly used in Australian wines. As our grapes are organically grown to the specification of Australian Certified Organic, you can enjoy pure wines without any herbicide or pesticide residues.

Here are some useful tips on vegan wines: Wines that are unfined and unfiltered are generally vegan wines.

Wines with no animal additives and filtered only with sterile filters (ceramic filters) or cross-flow filters are vegan. Be sure to check with the producer.
Several mass-produced wineries use sterile filters instead of animal products.
Some wineries use bentonite clay to fine protein from white wines instead of isinglass and other animal products.
Biodynamic wines can be made in a vegan way when they are unfined but since the farming process uses animal bones (for special compost mixtures) it negates this.

If a wine is certified organic, that doesn’t guarantee it’s vegan, please ask at the cellar door or read the back label for information.
