Vegan White Wine from Willow
At Willow, we take great care to make sure that every item on our menu– from our freshly made juices to every bite of food– is completely vegan, made from wholesome ingredients with compassionate methods.
Our wine list is no different!
Twin Suns, Buttery Chardonnay (2022), California
For a dry white wine that will leave guests reaching for the bottle, turn to this delicious buttery chardonnay.
The overall palette of this wine is creamy and soft, with a slight “buttery” finish, just as the name would suggest. Unlike many chardonnays, this wine avoids the trap of being overly sweet. Instead, it perfectly balances fruit-forward notes of melon and white peach without leaning too hard in either direction.
The result is a smooth, well-rounded wine that pairs perfectly with any of our extensive “seafood” options or vegan cheeses. The sharp, salty flavors bounce perfectly off the backdrop of this wine, creating a blend of flavors you won’t soon forget.
Best of all, this wine is fully Kosher, making it one of the most inclusive options on our menu.
Massey Dacta, Sauvignon Blanc (2022), New Zealand
Looking for a gentle, crowd-pleasing wine? Look no further than the Massey Dacta sauvignon blanc, sourced from New Zealand.
This wine walks a careful tightrope, maintaining a delicate balance. Neither overtly sweet or overwhelmingly dry, too bold or unforgettably light, this wine walks a fine line of flavor. Perfect for a newbie into the wide world of vegan wines, it is the perfect option for anyone hoping to offer their guests a delicious yet unobtrusive sip.
On first taste, diners will be struck by the bright hints of citrus and kiwi, presenting a slightly more acidic profile. However, as they sink into the flavors of the glass, they’ll begin to savor the background notes of grapefruit and tropical fruits.
From start to finish, this is one glass your guests are guaranteed to love!
Primary Wine Co., Chardonnay (2021), California
Consider stepping into the bolder zone of big flavors, like those found in this Primary Wine Co. Chardonnay.
This California wine is among the vivid on our list, with flavors that beg to be adored. Loud Honeycrisp apples make up the main notes of this fragrant, unforgettable wine. Lemon zest and melon follow shortly after, cutting into the sweetness and rounding out the mouthfeel with a touch of acidity.
Finally, a light, buttery touch finishes this wine, grounding the flavors back down to Earth. Best enjoyed alongside equally bold flavors, this wine is complemented by vegetarian pork substitutes and cruelty-free salmon.
Montefresco, Pinot Grigio (2022), Italy
Is there any white wine more classic than a pinot grigio?
For a special treat, enjoy your cruelly-free meal alongside a glass of this Montefresco pinot grigio, brought to your table from the Italian countryside.
Though perfectly balanced in the zones between dry and sweet, light and bold, soft and acidic, this wine is not one to be forgotten. In fact, the flavors of this wine border on the most complex of our entire bar. Notes of earthy mushrooms and stone contrast unexpectedly with bright citrus and lemon. Gentle notes of pear and apple deepen the complexity into something relatable and fun, tying this wine in place as one of the most beloved on the Willow bar.
