Crane Lake - Cabernet Sauvignon

Recommended Posts

So since I've been very sick for almost 36 hours now, I've started trying to hunt down the culprit so I can avoid this in the future if at all possible. I tried a new cheap wine called Crane Lake before getting sick. Has anyone had this before? I wanted to call the company, but it doesn't have a number on the bottle and I can't seem to find them online. It just says Crane Lake Cellars, Napa Valley. It was decent wine for the price, but I'll never buy it again unless I know it's gluten free!

The other suspect stuff I had was:

whole foods organic canned garbanzo beans

Safeway cornstarch (usually use Argo)

Safeway cumin (used it before, but maybe not as much as I did this time)

I can't think of anything else that was new to my diet.

Thanks in advance for anything you can offer!

Emily,

I ran across your post about a month ago after having a reaction of my own. I too had a few new items I had added to my diet including the Crane Lake Petite Sirah. I was devastated at the thought that my wine might be the culprit. I had the same problem trying to find and answer about CL online.

However, I happen to be in the industry. So, I contacted the rep. for Crane Lake and asked her to see if she could find out for me. Omitting e-mail addresses and names I am quoting her e-mail and that of Crane Lake.

Rep: " I have a client that loves the Petite Sirah, but she is very allergic to wheat. SHe had a reaction the other day. One of the things she had was the Crane Lake. She does not want to give it up, but if anything - even the barrel sealant would cause a reaction. If we are 100% that there is not wheat she would like to order a case and let her wheat free support group know that this is an approved product. Can you help me with this because I am at a loss."

Crane Lake: " We do not add any wheat products to our wines. TTB is the governmental agency that regulated the wine industry. I looked at their list of authorized treatments. Wheat is not on the list of authorized treatment materials. I hope this helps."

I plan on testing it out again. With cheddar cheese it is great. I'll cross my fingers, and keep you informed if I have a reaction.

"It's 5 O'clock somewhere!" ;)
