anyone know the answer to that?

I've seen that on a few websites, but I can't find an answer to WHY.

Thanks!

This is one place I saw that information:

http://gfkitchen.server101.com/GFAlcohol.htm#Wine

and I'm pretty sure I saw it somewhere else, too.

Ah yes, glutenous wine barrels comes up from time to time. Until wine manufactures are subject to the full disclosures as in foods, we might not ever know whats in that bottle. But, I would assume that IF there was residual gluten from a wine barrel that it would be so insignificant. Common sense would imply that you don't contaminate good wine with wheat, which is one of the main allergens.

I do know, that there are many, many people on this forum who drink wine regularly without issue. I expect that it's rare to find a product where no celiac will have a reaction. We vary in our sensitivity enormously.

I can't think of a better treat than a good meal and a good bottle of wine.

Because it's wine?

Seriously, despite these dark tales of barrels sealed with flour (which are then cleaned) I know of no people with celiac who have ever had a CELIAC reaction traceable to wine. Every celiac I know who drinks wine drinks it without worrying about gluten. They don't check labels (except to look at quality and type) and they don't call companies.

As our worries go, this one should be so low as to be off the radar.

Yeah! If I had to rely on boxed wines I would be a sad girl :)

Thanks!
