South African Winery Gains Global BeVeg Vegan Certification Badge

United Nations of Wine Enters Second Year as South Africa’s Premiere Vegan Winery with Global Certification from BeVeg International

Stellenbosch, South Africa (Feb. 1, 2019) United Nations of Wine of Stellenbosch, South Africa has successfully earned re-certification by BeVeg International for their continued vegan compliance in winemaking. United Nations of Wine was among the first to join the ranks of wineries across the globe who are catering to the vegan consumer by using plant-based fining practices and ingredients. Many wineries filter their wines through animal parts or have ingredients that use animal byproducts. Since alcohol rarely has disclosures on the bottle, the consumer rarely knows exactly what they are actually drinking. Once again, after an extensive review of its production practices and ingredients, United Nations of Wine passed the BeVeg vegan certification process for the products applied: Frisky Zebras Seductive Shiraz and Frisky Zebras Sensuous Sauvignon Blanc.

According to Carissa Kranz, founder and CEO of BeVeg International, the company’s certification seal is “a stamp of approval” that tells vegans and others who care about sustainability and social responsibility that a wine label that carries its trademark meets the strictest standards of vegan compliance.

“United Nations of Wine uses no animal byproducts in its winemaking,” explained United Nations of Wine’s CEO, Dr. David John Bate. “We are all part of a connected community. We respect our partners, our planet and you. ” says Dr. Bate

Around the world, conscious companies are starting to embrace these higher standards of production and want independent verification from BeVeg International, a law firm for global vegan certification. BeVeg International certified United Nations of Wine’s production practices as vegan-friendly after reviewing the entire vineyard’s winemaking process. United Nations of Wine was founded as the vision of winemaker and proprietor Dr. David John Bate. Its mission is to make affordable, environmentally friendly, ethically produced bespoke wines that deliver superior value. As a CarbonNeutral® certified company, it engages in environmentally sensitive practices that reduce our carbon emissions footprint. The portfolio of award-winning wines are mindful of their global impact by promoting sustainable farming practices. For more information visit and
