When I was looking at wines yesterday I noticed some stating that they were unoaked.  I also heard someone asking about a wine and being asked if she preferred unoaked.  Is that a gluten thing referencing the use of barrels?

No. Some people don't like the flavor oak imparts to a wine.

Talk about a fast response!  Interesting about how the quotes show our local time zone while the posts show California's time zone.

Just happened to be on and that was one thing I know about!

My posts & quotes show my KC time zone. I think there is something you have to set in your profile area? It was still showing central time for some things when I was in Colorado... But Colorado time for others. But I didn't pay much attention.

The posts reflect the time zone in your user settings. If you have not set one, or are not logged in, the default is California time, since the board is based in Santa Rosa, CA. A quote will show the time zone of the member who quoted the post. I post in Eastern time, but if somebody in Chicago quotes me, the time in the quote will be Central time.

I was thinking about it myself.  How was it?  Which one did you try?  Did you find it locally?

Passover wines are grain free.

 

Keep in mind that intestinal mastocytosis is commonly accompanied by other gastrointestinal conditions.  One common symptom of mastocytosis is intolerance to alcohol.

I'm not sure why, but red wine seems to be very bad for me. I can't work out why, I am fine with whites, champagne, cider, other spirits. But for some reason, if I have a couple of glasses of red I will puke all night long. I don't think it is gluten related, but I'd love to know why it happens!

You are probably reacting to the tannin that can be found in the skin, seeds and stems of the grapes. Red wines have more. I love red wine, but it does not like me. It really triggers my Rosacea!

I hear you!  If I drink wine I turn into Rudolf within minutes!

I haven't verified it, but i read on another site that people with celiac may react to some wines (especially French) because they still use a wheat-paste to seal the casks during fermenting. Might be worth researching, just haven't gotten to it as I don't drink a lot of wine.

There may be some vineyards that do this, especially in Europe where the wine making is centuries old.  However, I drink wine on a regular basis and love the French Rhone wines.  I have never, ever had a problem with any wine I have drunk and I am extremely sensitive to small amounts of gluten.  I would not be doing as well as I am right now if there were detectable amounts of gluten in wine.  There are many reasons why people may react to wine, including sulfites and the fact their gut may not be healed enough to handle wine/alcohol yet. I couldn't drink alcohol for the first 3 years of recovery.  Thank goodness that is no longer true.....  ;)

I know this topic is a little old but I thought I'd respond anyway! I have reacted to several red wines & I am very sensitive to cross contamination. In my research there are a few things I discovered about wine making. Some one already mentioned sealing the barrels with a wheat paste, but many wine barels were used before for grain based alcohols, along with some "oaked" wines are using old barrels chopped up. If a barrel has ever been used for anything grain based then I am in trouble! Most whites wines use steel barrels and they can be cleaned better than wood. I have had great success in drinking Frey wines but they are hard to find, although if you live in a state that you can have alcohol delivered to you, then you can order from there website.

On a side note Ocean vodka is certified gluten free and I have had no reaction to it either.

Wine is good. I stick to unoaked primarily, to be ultra-safe, have been gluten free since 2006 and am hyper- sensitive to the evil gluten!  I like Barefoot wines but, after reading much research, I am pretty certain any reaction to lovely wine is due to something other than gluten. 

wine actually helps a reaction for me, by the way!

Best luck in healing to you!

    • I was noticeably gray at 18. Both of my parents went gray young as well. I have no thyroid problems and I'm pretty sure my celiac issues didn't start until 20 years later....   I started dying it when I was 28. I wanted to look more professional!
    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best!
