John Salley Invests in Vegan Wine Company

Former NBA player John Salley has became a partner at and spokesperson for a cruelty-free winery.

Retired basketball star and healthy-living advocate John Salley has never been shy about discussing his plant-based diet, and now he will also be speaking out against the use of animal products in winemaking as part of his new role as a partner at Vegan Vine Wines. Salley announced yesterday that he has obtained an ownership position at the company, and will use his position to raise awareness about the often-nonvegan winemaking process. Vegan Vine Wines are produced by the Northern Californian winery Clos LaChance, which has ceased the usage of any animal products and now prides itself on its all-vegan varieties. “As both a vegan and wine lover, I was very surprised to learn about the use of animal products in the vinification process. I had no idea,” Salley explains.
