This Local, Sustainable Wine Is Vegan-friendly And Under $20

Australian family winemaker De Bortoli Wines have released a range of vegan-friendly, sustainable produced wines. Launched under the 17 TREES label, the range comprises a shiraz, pinot grigio, and chardonnay. 

17 TREES wine builds upon De Bortoli’s first sustainability project in 2008; planting 17 trees for each company vehicle to offset the carbon effects of its fleet. In an effort to contribute to rebuilding the Australian bushland destroyed during the 2019-20 bushfires, De Bortoli has partnered with not-for-profit organisation Trillion Trees, meaning every six bottles of 17 TREES sold will go towards planting a tree in Australia. So, you can pour one out while doing good for the environment.
