I've yet to see valid evidence that would make me not consume wine. Many people don't react well to it, but it doesn't mean its a celiac reaction.

And spock...depending on who you ask and how much you've eaten...two drinks very well could be over-expirimenting :)

I have no problem with wine or distilled alcohols. I drink single malt scotch, so no chance of contamination through a cheap blend, and all the wines I've tried have been fine (barring that over-indulgence thing). If you, personally, react to something, then by all means remove it from your diet, but don't assume that everyone has the same response.

I agree with Peter, over the years this is one thing I've heard constantly--the gluten-in-wine theory...but then why haven't any ever tested positive for gluten? Tons of celiacs now use the gluten test strips, yet I've never heard of a wine testing positive for gluten. I've spoken to the owners at one of the biggest commercial gluten testing labs about this as well, and he's never seen it either. I also go to wineries regularly, and have seen them heat steaming the inside of new barrels...the water is near boiling, and they use a powerful steam power washer to do this. Do you think they'd want any contamination in their wine? Also, any material in the wine settles for at least a year before they bottle it, and is not used.

I've thought about doing a $500 challenge on Celiac.com for anyone who can find a commercially produced wine that tests positive...what do you think?

I drink a few brands of white wines, and have not had a problem.

According to this article, its not just the flour paste in the barrels that could be a problem. Wheat is used as a clarifying agent in wine. Its not clear whether it can end up in the finished product.

It's never been the least bit of concern to me, nor to any of the national celiac foundations/associations or research organizations.

.....just sayin' :D

And I agree with Lisa and Sylvia. None of the major advocacy groups for celiac disease or gluten intolerance list wine as a concern. Even the notoriously over-cautious Celiac Sprue Association lists wine as safe.

don't they use wheat paste as a glue when making the wooden wine barrels??
if so, it stands to reason that trace amounts are in wine.
last time i tried a sulfite free white wine, it made me feel terrible. could be that alchohol is'nt for me.?



Recently I was at a resort that hosted a vintner weekend of wine tasting. i spoke with the vintner who explained the wheat paste issue to me. He statement was that the higher quality wines do not use the wheat paste as they properly seal their kegs. It is the lesser quality (under $5) wines that "could" be a concern as they are the ones that would be more likely to use wheat paste to seal the cracks. He statement was "could be". He stated that he had not heard of gluten as being an issue but that he would not rule it out. Higher quality wines would not be an issue. Would anyone like to shared a bottle with me? :P :P

Under $5 a bottle? I've never seen anything so cheap! I can probably thank the LCBO for that. :D

While I didn't perform the tests myself, I do have an acquaintance who has tested some wines for gluten with the ELIZA test. 2 out of 7 wines did test positive.

Probably don't wanna offer that $500 just yet. ;)

The test had a detection level of 10ppm, so all I can say is that it had more gluten than that. Probably still less than 20ppm, I'd imagine. So probably safe for most people, just not anyone who has issues with 10ppm gluten or more.

'tis nasty stuff. Gave me an unpleasant hangover after a glass and a half. (I had to pour out the rest of the second glass - it got nastier as it warmed up.)
