Hi,

I've been gluten-free for about a year and would like to try drinking some white wine. I'm not sure whether there are some additives I should know about. Is all wine gluten-free? Can you suggest some gluten-free brands?

Thank you,

Jen

I don't know any brands who add gluten but the best way to find out is call a few companies and ask.

I would think that most wines are gluten free. Since you have not had any wine in some time, I would start out slow. Enjoy, but slowly. :)

Thanks for your replies. I can't imagine that gluten would be added to wine, but you never know. Have you had any reactions to wine?

Thanks,

Jen

Some people have problems with wine, but it is not gluten. I think it is the sufites? You might wan't to try an organic wine. They do not contain sulfites.

Enjoy!

I don't know of any wines that contain gluten but if any did I might guess that it was those that had an added flavor like peach or berry. Gget a good quality bottle and enjoy a glass! Organics are great- we have a winery native to our area that makes great wines!

I thought grapes & wine contained natural sulfites-- remember that from another thread. Anyone know?

I think there are naturally occuring sulfites in wine. The differences is with the organic they do not add any? Is this right?

The only wine I found that has gluten is some Ports so don't drink those without checking them.

in the beginning of my gluten-free life, i stuck with sutter home & gallo wines. i have come to learn from several different sources that all white wine is gluten free. my favorites (for at home are mondavi and vendage). but it's quite nice to go out and order a drink without hundreds of questions and special concessions to be made. i simply ask for a white wine and have had no problems. for crazier nights - i go with bacardi "o" and 7-up. but mostly stick with wine due to having less of a hangover! enjoy!

Wow, I'm shocked about Port. I'm going to have to check on this. My boyfriend and I have had several varieties on various occasions and I haven't had a problem yet. I guess I'll have to be more vigilant in calling first.

I did some research and found out that wines wouldn't "contain" gluten, but might be filtered through grains to eliminate sediment (for white wines). Some are filtered through coal, some through grains, some through screens, but not metal, because that changes the wines aging process. The cheaper ones use grain, but even that is rare now. That might explain why SOME people get sick SOME of the time.

Hi Jen, Some wines do have gluten in them, althought if you get their phone number off the bottle and call they can usually inform you. I have been glutenfree for bout 5 years and have found some really good wine. All Barefoot wines are gluten-free.I know ladybug is gluten-free but have never been able to find it.Bonterra is an excellent gluten-free wine both red and white.These wines are not expensive so if your looking for the pricier ones cant help ya. Good luck.

If you look at the labelling forum, you will find a discussion of this. There are two ways allergens can get into wine. There are fining agents that take sediment out. This can be a form of clay, egg, casein, or some part of a fish. This is why some wines are considered vegan and some aren't. Some say they have reacted to fining agents before. I haven't noticed anything myself ... but then, any reaction I might have been blaming on something else :huh:

I haven't heard of grain as a fining system or anything special about port, or white wine versus red wine. I'm not an expert, though. I just read one article.

The way I've read that gluten MIGHT get into wine is if it is kept in barrels using a wheat-based glue. I haven't seen anyone say they reacted to this, though.

The FDA has a proposal out now to require labeling of such allergens. The vintners are opposing it. They say no one has been proven to react to these things or even if the stuff exists in the final product.

    • I have had rolling food intolerance issues and stuff crop up for years....but this time it was seemly triggered by a cold.  I got a cold this weekend standard fever, stuffy nose, coughing gunk up, head pressure, random dizzy spells etc. Anyway I was eating on my chia seed rotation before getting it just fine...but about halfway into my cold I started having vomiting issues after eating. I assumed this was the cold perhaps it was instead a flu. But I got over it now with just a bit of congestion and sore throat left BUT I noticed a pattern in my food diary and confirmed it yesterday...within 30-60mins of eating anything with chia seeds I am puking ....... it seems I got a new intolerance to them? I found this odd that it was seemly triggered by the cold. I guess it could have happened with the compromised system and fever. Has anyone else had a new food intolerance crop up after a cold?
    • Thinking I saw this earlier on another post....anyway I do have a thought on this. I get little blood blisters and sores in my mouth, and on my tongue from things I ended with allergies to. With celiac being a autoimmune disease it can sometimes effect your immune system, like make you more prone to random food allergies, histamine issues, food intolerance issues, and sensitivities. You might want to keep a food diary and mix up what you eating avoiding foods you have been eating for up to a week changing out sauces, oils, spices completely and see if you notice anything. If I eat anything with corn I get blood blisters in my mouth by example, a high PH food like if I use a undiluted vinegar on something had in the past giving me little sores...not had this happen in awhile. In the food diary keep track of the sores, body temperature, stool habits, how you feel, etc. Every little detail and see if you find some connection with foods you eat. Try a lower histamine diet perhaps if it is related to that.
    • Hi been diagnosed as celiac over 2 years ago have a bad episode at present with tongue and swollen sore nose looks like little blisters has anyone else had these symptoms and if so what made it stop please any advise would be fab 
    • As mentioned above is true, I used to love fruit I got other AI diseases and some other issues that prevent me from eating fruit but I am a freak lol. ANYWAY since your new I will link you the newbie 101 threads. I would be more concerned with hidden gluten in your old condiment filled with crumbs, your pasta strainer, cutting boards and and scratched pots in your house then say the banana you got at the store....peeled off the outside that might have been touched or handled by anything else and eaten the safe clean insides lol....banana come with their own wrapper perhaps the safest bet, funny they used to give celiac babies a mostly banana diet before they understood this disease well.

    • Some people can be asymptomatic, I know a few celiacs like this. Needless to say, this doesn't mean that gluten isn't still wreaking havoc in your intestines.
