Hi everyone,

 

I know the wine topic has been done before, and I may have missed it, but I can't find it in the super sensitive forum...

 

I have reacted to wines without question. I have reacted really badly to distilled grain alcohol as well.

 

Just wondering, what wines have you drank (if you are super-sensitive) without problems? I have had all Yellowtail wines without problems but I've tried a few others that "said" they were gluten free but sometimes I have a typical gluten reaction. 

 

Just wondering because I'd love to expand my repertoire without the pain of trial and error!

How long have you been gluten free? Lots of gluten-free folks have to wait many months to a year before drinking.

In the three months after going gluten-free I reacted to whisky in a way I hadn't before - horrible horrible cramps, bloating and gas. Six months down the line and all is good again :) If you are new to the diet it is fiddly working out what you can tolerate/re-introduce but preferable to cutting it all out. Apologies if you're further into it than that and this is irrelevant!

While  healing  one  should  avoid  many things...you need  to  eat  very clean  & pure  for  about  at  least  6 months  or  a year.....your  body is  struggling  to heal , it needs  all the help it  can get  from you.... I  agree  with cyclinglady.....

many times  it isn't  the  wine   per  say but the  sulfates  added in  the  wine..... Frey Vineyards  has sulfate  free  wine.....I'm sure there  are others  but  that is a good  one...

I agree that trial and error is a hard way to try to find out if you can drink something.  Super sensitivity is a pain.  I guess that's why I don't have a wine that I can drink.  I am currently drinking an apple vodka.  Not right now though, it's 10 a.m. LOL

lolz!

 

i have found that my tolerance for alcohol has diminished aka i am a cheap date since i'm gluten free.  i can drink beer, and.......  that's it.  zero to s#!tfaced if i drink wine.  i dare not try anything stronger because i don't have that much bail $$$ lolz

 

if you are new to the diet, i agree with the others.  give your body a chance to heal a little first, then trial and error :)

Wines are inherently gluten free and I have never seen one labeled as such because you don't have to label a naturally gluten free product.  Most people, if they react, are not healed yet or are reacting to something else, like sulfites.  I drink red wine often and am very sensitive......never had a problem.  I have no issue with sulfites, either. I could not drink any alcohol at all, pre-diagnosis or until I had healed.  I was a late starter to red wine.  :)

 

I am sure some poeple think there is gluten in some wines but any reputable celiac organization says no, they are safe.  Booze is tricky....people can have weird reactions to any of it for differing reasons but no need to worry about gluten.

If there were gluten in wine or distilled alcohol, I'd be dead by now.  :D

 

I echo everyone else's advice. Wait a bit longer before indulging. Your gut may still be raw. I had to wait a long time before I could enjoy it again after diagnosis. (and for the 3 years before it, I was too sick to indulge.) I'm sort of making up for lost time. Just had a fabulous sangiovese blend last night....

My celiac specialist dietician told me that most (not every single one just most) wines were naturally gluten free and really shouldn't be coming into contact with gluten UNLESS it's flavored. Any flavored wine or liquor should be avoided unless certified gluten free as it very well could contain gluten cross contamination. I think I am super sensitive I'm not 100% sure but other people with celiac disease that I have met have told me I am more sensitive than them and I do react to some "gluten-free" foods that contain 20ppm or less. Anything not made in a gluten free dedicated facility can result in a reaction for me but I usually drink wines from less prominent wineries not mass market wines so I would assume these places are just making wine and nothing else since they seem to be Napa wineries or European wineries.

You never mentioned flavorings.  Always check the label if flavor is added to wine/grain alcohol.  The straight product is gluten free.

I haven't had any bad reactions to wine.

 

Unless of course I forget when to quit!  :P

A note about the flavored wines - I have never found any gluten added to the few I have seen. I am not very fond of them so I don't usually drink them. A wine cooler is usually not wine - it is a malt beverage- so it contains gluten.

Wine is gluten free.  Wine spritzer drinks may not be.
