Vegan Wines at ALDI You Need To Know About

Vegan Wines at ALDI – yep, it is time to talk about that German grocery chain across the world that makes you bag all your items on a little shelf after you pay for them and seems to be the only grocery chain in Southern California that requires a quarter to get a cart. Despite all this ALDI has an amazing selection of Vegan Wines. Think you can guess how many. Did you guess 97? Because if you, did you would have been spot on. That’s right ALDI (at the time of writing) has 97 vegan wines and best of all they helpfully list them all on their website. Could this day get any better? Okay, now for the bad news. The selection I found came from the ALDI UK website. I list all the vegan wines currently available at ALDI UK in this post (btw this is the most vegan wines at one grocery store I have ever come across at Vegan Bev HQ).

Vegan Wines at ALDI

There are many vegan wines available at ALDI UK – from dry white wines to light to medium to full-bodied red wines to dry rose wines to vegan champagnes. There is a vegan wine to suit any palate at ALDI UK. ALDI US has one red wine which has been confirmed to be vegan.

Why is Wine Not Vegan?

If you would like a detailed explanation of why most wine is not vegan, I recommend reading my blog post Why Is Wine Not Vegan – What You Need To Know which goes into detail on the winemaking process and non-vegan issues.

To give you the short answer, most wines are not vegan due to the use of non-vegan fining agents during the clarification process at the end of fermentation. Fining agents are used to clump together unwanted molecules of yeast, excess tannins, etc to help make them easier to remove from the wine. The issue is that the most common fining agents used in this process are not vegan. Examples include Isinglass (dried fish bladders), Egg albumin, or Milk Proteins.

There are vegan fining agents available, however, they are not as widely used as the non-vegan versions. Furthermore, wine labels are not required to list ingredients or fining agents used. This can make it particularly hard to work out if the bottle of wine you are holding is vegan or not.

That is why at Vegan Bev HQ we like to put together these vegan wine lists to help you be able to pick up a vegan bottle of wine every time.

Vegan Wines at ALDI – How to Use This Article

To make this post as helpful as possible I have divided these vegan wines into four tables – for white, red, rose, and bubbles. I have also listed each wine’s grape and style so you can pick a wine that is right for you.

Vegan Wines at ALDI US

We have established that ALDI UK has an incredible selection of vegan wines. How about ALDI US? Well, the selection at ALDI US isn’t as wide. I looked up all the wines listed on the ALDI US website on (an amazing resource for checking if alcohol is vegan) and I could only confirm one red wine on offer is vegan.

That doesn’t mean that there are no other vegan wines at ALDI US – it just means we cannot confirm if any of the other wines are also vegan.

The ALDI UK website has an amazing filter where you can filter vegan wines. The ALDI US website doesn’t have this feature – but maybe it will come soon – fingers crossed. To be honest, my favorite wine is red so I am more than happy that I can grab a decent vegan red wine next time I pick up some groceries at ALDI.

Vegan Wines at ALDI - The Final Sip

Vegan Wine at ALDI – The Final Sip

Ninety-Seven. That’s a nine and a seven. In all my time writing at Vegan Bev HQ I have never come across a grocery store that offers such a wide selection of vegan wine. This goes for huge liquor stores like BevMo and even Whole Foods Market. I am not sure why the UK ALDI has such a great selection of vegan wines, but whoever is in charge clearly needs to get a promotion of some kind. We salute you kind ALDI UK wine buyer. We Salute You. In fact, I can even ignore the fact that I must pay a quarter for a trolley and pack all my grocery shopping on a tiny shelf after checkout. Just get a bigger selection over to Southern California, please.
