Up until 2016 Delicata couldn’t say that all wines from particular ranges are vegan so they shared a list on their blog. I had reshared this 2016 Delicata vegan wine list on my blog about 2 years ago. Now they are confident to confirm that all their wines since 2017, with the label reading DOK Malta, DOK Gozo or IGT Maltese Islands are vegan. To make it easier for you, I will list all of these wines below.
