No Additives

Vinchase natural wines are additive free!

Wine is one of only commercial goods that does not require a list of ingredients, even though the FDA allows for up to seventy (70) additives. These additives are used in the conventional winemaking process and are used to alter the flavors, acidity, texture, aroma and color of the wines. Some of the ingredients allowed are made from animal product, thus making the wines not vegan friendly.  Sugar is often added to hide flaws in the wine, most would be surprised to learn that some of the best selling conventional wines contain up to 20g of sugar per liter. You can find these mass produced wines in the supermarket, wine shop, online, or any chain store. You won’t find them on Vinchase.

Vinchase wines are fully fermented dry and do not contain sugar or any other additives.
