The Vegan Brand: Montaria is a brand that appears in honor of the Herdade's dog, Montaria, with its paw illustrated on all labels. The Montaria family thus presents a wine certified for Vegan, which did not use any animal product in its winemaking and bottling process. It should be drunk with serenity and awareness of nature. During the vinification of a wine, one of the most important stages is the clarification process, in which the must separates itself from the solid particles that still persist , in order to clarify and filter the liquid. In this process, normally, the addition of gelatines of animal origin, fish glue or egg white is used. Allied to proximity and respect for nature, Parras Wines decided to use only alternative elements, of vegetable or mineral origin, in the clarification of its products. Therefore, Montaria appears without any ingredient of animal origin or derivatives in its clarification, obtaining the Vegan certification and allowing consumers to taste a glass of wine respecting their concept and lifestyle.
Vinification and Ageing: The grapes are harvested in the early hours of the morning and transported to the cellar, where the must is separated and clarified, using the traditional open spout process. Fermentation takes place over 21 days, always at low temperatures (12ºC to 14ºC) in order to favor the aromatic expression of the wines. The entire process up to bottling is exempt from the application of any product of animal origin.
