Gluten Free Red Wine?
0

10 posts in this topic

Hi everyone. I apologize if this has been talked about, I'm sure it has but I did a search and all I found was a thread talking about sulfites making some people sick.

I need to know of a common brand of gluten free red wine that could be picked up at any average american drugstore such as wallgreens or rite aid. I'm not much of a drinker and know nothing about wine, so I don't know what brands are gluten free, if any, or are they all? I would think they all would be but I've learned on this journey never to assume. As I said I'm not much of a drinker but I might like to try a little wine sometime soon so I figure I should start educating myself now before just heading to the store. Thanks for any info you can provide!

Organic. They use nothing but pure bentonite clay to 'fine' their wines. Still waiting to order some myself.

Drinkable wine would not be found at a drug store. I suggest a wine store or your local grocery store.

All wines are gluten free and as sickchick mentioned, organic wines should not have sulfites. Sulfites are not gluten related, though.

For a cool summer drink, you might want to try some 7-up, a healthy splash or red wine and a couple orange slices.

I buy Well Read Organic Red Wine at Trader Joes (not a drugstore but I thought I'd mention it anyway). I believe it is $5.99 but if not, it is not much more. No sulfites, of course.

Trader Joe's always has the best wine deals... hands down. :P

Sipping on my glass now- it's not 'dry' and it's not 'sweet' it's quite neutral in flavor. It's nice. I gotta remember to eat something LOL :lol::ph34r:

Drinkable wine

It doesn't have to be good. It just has to be alcohol. I'm not one of those people who is really into wine for the taste, etc. I drink for a buzz and that's it. lol. I don't really care about sulfites if they aren't related to gluten. If all wines are gluten free then woo hoo is all I have to say! :lol: Thanks!

All 'premium' wines should be gluten-free. Judging by posts on this site & stories from folks in the wine industry, some of the lower priced wines *may* have additional additives that *may* cause reactions in some folks. I would guess that if it is plain (not mulled or spiced) wine and comes in a bottle it's almost certainly gluten-free. I have had Trader Joe's wines with no reaction.

If you have other food sensitivities, you may want to pay attention to "fining" ingredients (stuff added to wine to help clarify it, theoretically this settles out and only the clear wine is bottled), or buy wine that says it is "unfined".

If you're looking for a gluten-free alcoholic beverage to unwind with or have with a meal, wine is my first choice! If you are looking for the cheapest gluten-free buzz, wine may not be your first choice - some plain distilled spirits might be cheaper (and I assume by buzz you don't mean binge - if I am wrong and you binge drink to get that buzz you might want to consider a change in behavior).

lol no I dont binge. I haven't had a drink in maybe 6 months or so? And that was red wine but it was before I was really learning about being gluten free and still was being glutened by random things at the time, so I'm not sure the effect it had on me, you know? I mostly am thinking about having some bottles of wine around because I will be entertaining company coming up in a few weeks here. Thanks again! :D

    • Thanks.  This is very helpful.  Our first post diagnosis grocery store trip took several hours, just trying to read labels to make sure everything is safe.   Our son loves bread and this going to be the hardest part. 
    • i would agree with most of your assessment but overall the popular chefs are very aware. Ed Kenny at Town did have  gluten-free options on the menu.  Mavro's will fix something special given advance notice but its expensive.  excellent but very expensive.  Alan Wong is very aware and will have his staff prepare something as well.  We did find many options at both Oahu  whole foods -- mostly  with tofu. the only thing  there is to be aware of cross contamination with things  next to it.  they make a great gluten-free southwestern tofo dish which is great but not if its sitting next to anything with gluten. Its not whole foods but people use the smae  spoons and tongs i found more at   down to earth in peal city than by  University ave  
    • Hi,  I'm in KOna but my kaiser doctor just retired  who was pretty good about it. I dont know of a specialist here  but most of hte kaiser docs wil test you if thats when you need to talk to them about. good luck  
    • Yes.  And wouldn't it have been nice if your doctor had tested you for Celiac disease before you went gluten free? Then you would know if your issues are Celiac or not.  That would help you know how careful you need to be, what other illnesses and problems to look for, whether you might be passing a genetic disease on to your children, if you should look for another cause of your symptoms, etc  
    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time.
