To be honest, even though the alcohol ban has been lifted I’m still enjoying drinking non-alcoholic wines like this vegan-friendly absolute zero nectar from Van Loveren.

I truly enjoy the taste of this wine, I love the bubbles, and the fact that it feels like I’m having a celebratory drink. I can drink this vegan-friendly wine anywhere (at a friends place or on the beach) and I can have a glass or two or three without having to worry about drinking too much.
Isn’t all wine vegan?
Many people assume (I did once too) that all wine is vegan as it is made from grapes. What people don’t know is that many wineries still use animal ingredients (casein, egg whites, gelatin, fish bladder protein, etc.) during the winemaking process, in order to make the wine clear and bright. Luckily for us Vegans, there are wineries like Van Loveren, which use vegan-friendly alternatives instead, which do not alter the taste of the wine.
