Vegan Wines on Tap…its vegan month

Vegan Wines on Tap – Our guest blogger this month is our Operations Specialist Kerry all about Vegan wines…

Whilst it would be easy to assume all wine is vegan given wine = fermented grapes, the filtration and fining process necessary to achieve clarification of wine traditionally requires the use of eggs, intestines and even fish bladders! Not a pleasant thought, right?

Thankfully no such ingredients are used in any process whilst producing our fantastic wines on tap.

What else about our vegan friendly wines on tap;
•The wine maintains a higher level of the antioxidant reservatrol an anti-ageing agent! Due to the reduction of chemicals and preservatives.
•Lower levels of sulphites mean a reduction of sulphite-linked reactions commonly assumed to be associated with headaches and rashes. Reduction of chemicals used in the process not only contribute to a healthier you, but also a healthier eco-system.
•Finally, we think it’s safe to say the lack of harmful preservatives certainly gives the wine a fresher taste.

We’ll drink to that ~ Cheers!

On a serious note, no bathing in wine to look younger – Drink responsibly

New to ON TAP drinks? or, just wine or cocktails

8 years ago when we started the business it took us time to learn about dispense systems – what pressure, what is the keg coupler, how do I connect it all together, what’s best Co2, air or mixed gas, line length, line thickness? Arrghh! We know full well the uncertainty that can be around setting up a new dispense system for ON TAP drinks.


We’ll start with the flow of how wine is dispensed in a traditional set up…

Italian wine classifications

Ever wondered about wine classifications – those 3 or 4 characters on a label?

Here’s a quick guide…

VDT “Table wine” Typically a mixture of grapes from the local region

IGT “Simple & Young wines” Mostly young wines from grapes grown locally

DOC “Controlled” This is where you’ll start paying a little more – but still affordable. A DOC wine will follow regional wine making rules.

DOCG “Guaranteed – follows strict guidelines” Vineyards can only grow so much of it, wines have longer aging periods, and must pass a taste testing by the goverrnment licensed personal.
