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!

    • Me too. I still get transient lower back pain occasionally when my bladder or colon is full. It goes away immediately on voiding. Regardless of anything other diseases you may have, being wheat free gives you relief so even if not Celiac you are Non Celiac Wheat Sensitive. There are over 200 symptoms that are improved with GFD gluten free diet. Google it. It is an impressive list. In any case, while it is good to have a diagnosis, there is only one treatment, do not eat wheat and deal with the inevitable malnutrition damage.(think Biafra babies 1970.) Most will improve over time. Whatever doesn't improve should be investigated to be safe, but realize that recovery may take years. Wheat flour used should be limited to Paper Mache sculpture and library paste.  
    • Here is a partial list of what I no longer suffer from as a result of not eating wheat. Some like the sleep apnea and gerd and back pain and addiction to alcohol were almost immediate. The foot pain is improved to just numbness sometimes. My long term depression went away when I added vitamin D 10,000 iu a day for a year, but the improvement started almost immediately. Muscle tone and energy improved when I added iodine. one sheet sushi seaweed a day. My Fibromyalgia is controlled with 15 mg oral Prednisone a day. I remember as a kid waking up and having to pick the dried mucuos off the roof of my mouth. That is gone and for the first time in my life I am a nose breather. Drink lots of water to help with the mucous if it is thick. Some mornings mine is like rubber cement. I need to quit smoking now.  You can improve have faith, but healing takes time. Stay the course. A Romaine lettuce salad everyday helped the gut pain. Gerd shortness of breath sleep apnea back pain snoring prostrate hypertrophy contact lens protein buildup night vision improved cataracts reduced head hair growth foot pain sleeping no more than 2 hours at a stretch slow healing no energy. Pretty much bed ridden. 
    • Celiac Disease is damage to the nooks and crannies in our intestines leading to malnutrition, vitamin deficiencies with all the various symptoms that make it so hard to diagnose. Then you add years of the antacids, antibiotics, Tylenol, opioids, alcohol, etc., each with their own particular side effects and damage. Now you've got a toxic environment that kills off the beneficial bacteria increasing malnutrition. Theoretically you can eat anything except gluten. But wheat is so ubiquitous in our diet and economy there are unlimited opportunities for cross contamination. So read the label. Use common sense. If there isn't a label it doesn't have wheat so you can eat. Big Food likes to add wheat to everything because it is addictive and helps them ensure you can't eat just one. Why on earth else would Campbells Tomato Soup have wheat listed as an ingredient? Meantime your body is in distress from malnutrition so you need to be sure to replenish D3, and Iodine for starters and treat and support any other symptoms while you heal. Good nutrition without wheat is the only way to stop progression. And just like chewing paint chips made with lead is bad, so is food with wheat.   well said, doesn't need a label.
