In most wines, animal products are used as processing aids in the “fining” or filtration part of the winemaking process to help remove solids such as grape skins, stems and seeds. (source) The most common animal ingredients used in making wine are:

  • Isinglass, a very pure form of gelatin from sturgeon fish bladders
  • Gelatin, extract from boiled cow’s or pig’s hooves and sinews
  • Egg whites
  • Caseins, a protein from milk
