Avaline is a company founded on raising the standard of what goes into your glass. We aim to deliver a range of delicious clean beverages by using only the best ingredients and excluding unnecessary extras. To start we’re launching with a range of clean delicious wines for your everyday.
Clean wine means that we always use organically grown grapes and never add colors, concentrates, or unnecessary sugars and sulfites. All of our ingredients are carefully considered, naturally-derived, and we never use animal by-products.
According to the USDA, in order to be able to say that our wine is Made with Organic Grapes the following have to be true:
- 100% of the grapes need to come from Certified Organic vineyards. The US recognizes the organic certification that is obtained by each of our producers: the Competent Body of Catalonia (Spain) and Bureau Veritas Certification (France).
- Yeast and any other agricultural ingredients are required to be produced without excluded methods (like genetic engineering).
- Any additional ingredients have to be specifically allowed on the National List of Allowed and Prohibited Substances and can't exceed 5% of the total product.
- The wine must contain less than 100ppm of sulfites.
The wine industry is regulated by the TTB, not the FDA. This means that unlike other packaged foods and beverages, wine brands are not required to disclose ingredients or nutritional information. In the United States, over 70 ingredients can be added to wines without any disclosure. You can learn more about the common additives here.
All of the ingredients in our wine adhere to the guidelines set in place by the USDA for wine that is Made With Organic Grapes. You can see a full list of our carefully considered ingredients here.
Yes, we opt for animal-free fining, so you can drink easy knowing no egg whites, fish bladders, or casein are used in the making of our wine.
Yes, all Avaline wines are gluten-free. Grapes themselves are gluten-free and in our winemaking process, there is no introduction of gluten.
We’re committed to reducing the flow of products that end up in landfills. Because of this, all of our packaging, down to our screw cap is recyclable, just make sure you rinse your bottles so your city will accept them!
