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!

    • Furthermore, getting a positive on the endoscopy will leave no doubt either in your mind nor in the minds of the rest of your family or friends. All first degree relatives of celiacs need to be tested every 2 or 3 years in the absence of symptoms & immediately if symptoms present since celiac can present at ANY age. So your parents, siblings & your children will need to be tested. Believe me, there is oftentimes a TON of pushback by family members simply because they don't want to have celiac so they stick their heads in the sand & say you're off your rocker, refuse to get tested because they say they don't have it and you don't have a concrete diagnosis so how can you be sure they need to be tested? Friends can be even more doubtful. People are really, really doubtful of people who don't have an ironclad diagnosis. I think it's stupid of them to be so negative & questioning what you know to be true but they are. I mean, when you say you are diabetic, no one doubts that you are, no one questions your diagnosis and everyone respects the implications of diabetes but that is not the case with celiacs. I think it must be that people can not conceive of never eating wheat flour again for life. They can easily accept a diabetics diet but not a celiacs. Yet they will grill you as if they are experts in celiac disease unless you can tell them you've had the full nine yards of testing & ARE, no doubt about it, celiac.
    • Hi ch88, You could try going nightshade free to see if it helps your arthritis.  It might help.  The common food nightshades are potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, turmeric and paprika.  If you try nightshade free for one month that should be enough time to know if it helps IMHO. Sweet potatoes/yams are ok, as they are not nightshades.
    • Thankyou both of you for your advice, i will have the endoscopy will just have to wait, my blood tests were not hitting the roof with reading but a low to medium result, dont want to be one of them people who have gone gluten free with no need, however i do show typical symptons of celiac but no overwhelming symptons apart from feeling nauseous and crampy at times, and extreme tiredness. There is soooo much to learn
    • You are normal!  All the things you are going through are normal for someone with celiac disease....probably with any life changing illness.  What you need is patience.  Most here take a year to heal or longer due to setbacks on the diet or healing from systemic damage.  The nervous system seems to take the longest.  Ask your doctor to check you for any deficiencies.  No sense guessing what you might need.  It is a common and recommended practice to check for vitamin and mineral deficiencies.   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-common-nutrient-deficiencies-might-an-adult-experience-prior-to-diagnosis/ Once healed, you might not need any supplements, if you eat a wide and varied healthy diet.  
    • Yes!  Ask for the IgA deficiency test!  Why?  Well, your doctor did not even follow protocol.  In order to validate the IgA celiac tests, he should have determined if you are IgA deficient or not. http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/it-mmfiles/Celiac_Disease_Diagnostic_Testing_Algorithm.pdf  I have never tested positive on the IgG tests and only had one positive on the IgA DGP test, but I was not IgA deficient, so my GI knew that my test was valid and I needed an endoscopy to confirm my diagnosis.  You do not know if any of your tests are valid.  You need the IgA test.  It is a control test only in the case of diagnosing celiac disease.  But....some celiacs are low in IgA and that seems to happen more often in celiacs than the general population.   https://www.theatlantic.com/entertainment/archive/2017/07/dunkirk-is-a-stunningly-spare-survival-film/534252/
