I was wondering if wine is ok for Celiac's to drink? I noticed that one type of the mead honey wine has yeast in it. Is yeast ok? I think it is, but can't remember whether some kinds are not.

I drink wine without concern. Yeast is safe with the exception of brewer's yeast. Brewer's yeast is unsafe because it is the spent yeast used in making beer, and has been thoroughly contaminated in the malting process.

When I googled mead honey wine and gluten a number of brands came up that say they are gluten free. You may want to google your brand and gluten and see what comes up. Most will be but there may be the odd one that isn't because they have added some flavoring or something.

Some are. I just finished a mead from Redstone Meadery. "Nectar of the Hops" Got some as a gift from a friend who is a judge a the Great American Beer Festival. What is really cool, is this year they even had a category for gluten free beer.

Here's some info on Redstone

It was pretty good. I'm still a fan of New Grist and Bards Tale. Both I can grab from the shop across the street. Though Redstone is only a few miles from my house(live near Boulder, CO)
