You may have a problem with yeast. Yeast antibodies are commonly found in celiacs, at least until they have been gluten-free for quite a while. Do you seem to react to yeasted bread?

Another possibility is that you had a wine that was fined with casein. Tiny amounts of fining agents do remain in the final product and people have reported reacting to them. There is currently a proposal before the FDA to require vintners to list allergens just like food manufacturers have to. To see if this is your problem, try a vegan wine (google and you can find listings).

It may be easier to start with something distilled like vodka or tequila, and then only have one drink. I don't know if there is anyway of guaranteeing you won't react, though. Your system may not be ready for alcohol yet.

You are sure that it was the wine that did you in, right? No possibility it was a stomach bug, food poisoning, a reaction to something you ate at the same time, etc.?

Was it homemade wine by any chance? I only ask because one time (before I had Celiac) I had a very bad experience with homemade wine. I only had two glasses at a wedding and I threw up all night. I'm generally not a big drinker but I'm not that much of a lightweight. Never been so sick in my life, until Celiac that is. I know a few other people got ill from the wine as well. So if it was homemade wine you might want to consider that.

This is definitely not a slight to those who make their own wine. I'm sure most people do a perfectly fine job and experiences like mine are probably quite rare.

I have very strange reactions to alcohol, too. I can have one drink and throw up all night. Or sometimes I'll have two or three over the course of a few hours (so it's not a drunk thing :)), and then I'll throw up. Other times I'm fine. It doesn't seem to be related to being glutened or sick or a specific alcohol or anything. I wish I knew what to tell you. I've been doing the diet pepsi thing a lot recently :(
