  1. Thank you for the vineyard/label names that you have contacted Julirama - I was looking for a list! And it does appear this will be a maker by maker search/ inquiry - The wine maker that I got the information from is American - NAPA Valley (J Lohr), and I understood that it was new and reconditioned barrels (they add new oak panels for flavor as well as repair). She advised to seek wine makers that use a stainless steel fermentation process - I also just found reference to white wines using new oak barrels sealed with flour paste. I will start and edit a GLUTEN FREE WINE list here: Tapena wines Big House wines Ten Spoon wines * these wines have been posted as gluten-free by forum members on this thread, compiled for your convenience - please refer to the wine maker for current gluten-free information and questions I also want to cross reference this thread for readers - it contains several good links for additional info. http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.ph...213&hl=wine
  2. my brother recently told me that a gal he dated is celiac and cannot drink red wine because the wine barrels are sealed with flour paste - I inquired of a friend who manages a winery - this is her response, after questioning her wine maker: Apparently it's common practice to seal the barrel heads with flour paste. It's a mixture of unbleached flour and distilled water used to assure a leak-proof seal. Here's the web site with more info http://www.stavin.com/barrelsystems/insert.htm Does anyone have additional information on this topic ?????? Thank you.
