Bust Out the Bubbly, But Make Sure It’s Vegan

Champagne is the traditional alcoholic beverage to serve on New Year’s Eve, and if you’re planning to imbibe, you may be surprised to learn that not all Champagne is vegan. Some Champagne is processed with fining agents, which can include products such as casein (milk protein), gelatin, and egg white.

Here is a list of five bottles of Champagne that are vegan:

1.  Organic Champagne Fleury
2.  Domaine Ste. Michelle
3.  Korbel
4.  Veuve Clicquot (Thank God this one is free of nasty stuff! I can’t remember the last time I had a glass of champagne… it must have been years… but I remember loving this one.)
5.  Piper Heidsieck
