The Vegan Vine Wines are grown and produced by Clos LaChance Winery, a family-owned operation located in the Northern Central Coast of California. Clos LaChance was founded in 1992 by Bill and Brenda Murphy. Today they work side-by-side with their two daughters to ensure the tradition of the winery continues to flourish.
Clos LaChance is proud to be Certified Sustainable by the California Sustainable Winegrower’s Alliance. Certification for the winery and 150 acres of Estate vineyards was obtained in 2010.

The Vegan Vine was developed when a family member had some questions regarding the use of animal products in winemaking . He was curious if Clos LaChance’s wines were suitable for his animal-free lifestyle. After meeting with the production team, it was determined that we could make a line of Vegan wines that were high quality—and educate Vegans in the process.
After working with various government agencies, Clos LaChance was able to develop an acceptable package that would achieve the goal of educating Vegans and other interested parties about animal products that are often used in wine production.
