Thanks for the replies.

Lisa - I do drink wine on a regular basis, and I don't have problems like this. A few weeks ago, I had about 3/4 of a bottle over the course of an evening and was perfectly fine. I did not consume any more alcohol on Friday than I do normally. So, it was not an alcohol thing. Of that, I am 100% certain.

And I thought I could tolerate wine well - until Friday. There must have been something about this wine - or something about the glass it was in - that made me so ill. Vomiting excessively after 2 glasses of wine is NOT normal for me at all.

pricklypear - I looked the wine up online after I felt a bit better. It does not look like it is flavoured, but I think I'm going to call the winery and ask about it. I'd like to get to the bottom of this, because I enjoy have a glass or two of wine with dinner every so often. But it is not worth the pain it caused me on Friday!

I have never heard of Crush wine. Could it be a wine cooler, which might contain barley malt like Smirnoffs Ice Coolers?

Wine in general is gluten free. I don't know anything about flavored wines :rolleyes: ....not on my grocery list.


It is not a cooler. It is a pinot grigio. From an Ontario winery.

I would never have a cooler without researching it first.

Like you, I thought wine was gluten free. But after my reaction on Friday, I'm not so sure anymore.

I have to think it might be something about the bar or food poisoning. Probably not the wine if it's just wine. You may never know. Something got me a few weeks back. Never have figured out what it could be. Welcome to the gluten free world! :blink:

I have a thought and a totally personal experience. We have a restaurant here in small town, usa. It's a local place, like "the brick" on Northern Exposure or like "Cheers".

I can have two glasses of wine here at home and feel totally fine. Same wine I buy at the grocery store. But, in a crowded environment like our restaurant and I'm busy talking to people, two glasses have a far greater impact.

Why, I'm not sure. But, my non gluten-free friends experience the same effect. I think it has to do with adrenalin of something.

Life with Celiac is curious. Sometimes, we might not ever know the answer. So we just do out best. :)

Maybe it is something in the air...I'm still paying for Friday's wine tasting fiasco.

I did notice something interesting - when I drink organic wine or biodynamic wine (can't remember the wineries) I could barely feel a buzz. Compared to regular wine (sulfates added, strong tannins), it was very different.

They're actually kind of interesting. I've seen a lot of various fruit flavored wines and nut flavored wines, but the oddest one I've come across was a chocolate flavored wine called Cocoa di Vine.
