Wild Vines Wine?

I've never heard of a wine containing gluten, either. I think it is only a concern if you are looking at a wine cooler or some other product where something is added to the wine.

I saw a reference once to an experiment (in another country, if I'm remembering right) with using gluten as a fining agent for wine (in which case small amount could be in the finished product). But I am unaware of any companies deciding to go forward with that. No descriptions of the fining process I commonly read mention the use of gluten.

I've seen the concern expressed that wheat-based glues used in casks could make their way into the final product. But no one tests for that, and I don't even think a test for that exists. There is currently a proposal to require US vintners to list major allergens as is required for food. Many fining agents are major allergens, after all.

That said, I've never heard of anyone having a gluten reaction to wine. A reaction to lingering fining agents, sulfites, etc., perhaps, but not gluten.

From what I can tell I think it is something that has juice or something added. I don't worry about wine either, but this seems to fall more in the wine cooler category. I was wondering if it had gluten because someone gave my parents a bottle and they both felt sick after drinking it. Could always have just been coincidence, but it did contain natural flavors so who knows. I'm really hating the natural flavor ingredient list because I've gotten sick before off a product that changed their ingredients and added malt, but it was listed under natural flavors so I missed it. Very frustrating!

I saw a segment about this on some show.

Grrrrrr can't remember what show.

They did say that some Aussie producers use something w/ gluten. :ph34r:

I'd previously bought a bottle of an Aussie c.sauvignon by Kim Crawford & now I'm afraid to drink it w/out further info!!
