It's the year of the flexitarian diet, if you haven't heard, which pretty much means tons of people are getting more and more curious about adding vegetarian and plant-based alternatives to their meals. Lucky for you, many wine options are vegan, and to make that even easier, there's a Veganuary Bundle you can now buy online that features plant-based cheeses and meats for your own veg-friendly charcuterie spread.
For starters, if you're unfamiliar with the term "Veganuary," it refers to an annual challenge that takes place each January and promotes veganism and plant-based lifestyles by encouraging individuals to try and go vegan for the first month of the year. This wine bundle is cleverly named after the challenge to help people make the lifestyle change a little bit easier by ordering the pack that comes with plant-based alternatives to a classic wine, cheese, and meat spread.
The bundle retails for $150 by Vegan Wines, and includes three bottles of wine, three vegan cheeses, and three vegan "meats." The selection of wines includes a sparkling option, a 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon blend, and a 2018 Sauvignon blanc.
To pair with those beverages, the cheese includes a "Garden of Eden" block, Chipper Cheddar, and Fig and Fennel option. Each of these vegan cheeses is made using cashews, coconut oil, nutritional yeast, and other spices to achieve their taste. The vegan meat options are inspired by the tastes of soppressata, toscana, and chorizo.
Whether you're trying out a new plant-based diet or are a seasoned vegan yourself, this bundle makes it easy to create a diet-friendly spread without having to read all the labels at the grocery store. Be sure to buy a nice charcuterie board to put it all on display to up the fancy factor and voilà.
