Nothing cramps your style quite like an allergic reaction, right? It’s amazing how the same handful of peanuts that bring immense pleasure to one individual, can trigger a life-threatening case of anaphylactic shock in another.

Why Are Some People Affected By Wine Allergies?

The difference between one person enjoying a glass of full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon, and the other having to deal with a migraine headache, flushing, hives, nausea, diarrhea, or even vomiting shortly after drinking the very same wine can all be traced back to certain componds. While the severity of allergies varies from person to person, they all share a common denominator – histamines & sulfites.

Men and women, young and old, can all suffer from wine allergies (intolerance). You’re not alone! For women, side effects from wine allergies often appear for the first time, or increase in severity, during and after menopause due to changing hormones that affect the immune system. For men also, allergy-like symptoms of wine intolerance often become more acute during middle-age.

What Are Histamines & Sulfites?

Histamines are chemical found in some of the body’s cells and cause many of the symptoms of allergies, such as a runny nose or sneezing. When a person is allergic to a particular substance, such as a food or dust, the immune system mistakenly believes that this usually harmless substance is actually harmful to the body. In an attempt to protect the body, the immune system starts a chain reaction that prompts some of the body’s cells to release histamine and other chemicals into the bloodstream.

Sulfites are chemicals used as preservatives to slow browning and discoloration in foods and beverages during preparation, storage and distribution. Sulfites have been used in wine making for centuries.

You can find sulfites in certain foods and beverages, as well as a variety of medications. The use of sulfites as preservatives in foods and beverages increased dramatically in the 1970s and 1980s. Due to cases of severe reactions to sulfites, a ban by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) went into effect in August, 1986. This ban prohibited use of sulfites in fresh fruits and vegetables. But they are widely used in wine making till this day.

Is There Any Hope?

Thankfully, yes. There have been many products that claim to remove histamines and sulfites, but here at PureWine, we managed to craft wine purifiers that are safe, natural and free of allergy inducing compounds. We offer The Wand for a single glass solution, The Wave for a bottle and The Phoenix that is reusable and can be enjoyed for years to come.

The patented, proven and safe PureWine® filter technology is present in all our products. In addition to selectively removing the histamines and sulfites, our patented blend of ion exchange resins are able to remove the oxidized components in wine that cause the bitter, undesired taste when wine has been exposed to oxygen for too long. With the PureWine™ technology, many wines that have become bitter due to oxidation can be “revived” so you can once again enjoy the naturally fresh wine flavors. No longer will you need to dispose of wine that has developed that “old wine” bitter taste. No more wasted wine! Reversing this aging process makes your wine taste like you just popped the cork. And along the way, the histamines and sulfites are also removed so you once again have nothing but PureWine.

What Is The Difference Between PureWine Products & Other Wine Purifiers?

Wine drop products are typically made from a common grade of hydrogen peroxide. This chemical reacts with the sulfite preservatives along with destroying the naturally healthy antioxidants common in all wines. Because the amount of peroxide needed for each glass of wine is not clearly known, the results vary. If too little is added then not all of the sulfites will removed. If too much peroxide is added, then the wine will taste like peroxide and the healthy antioxidants will be destroyed.

A second category of wine filters utilizes a technology that preferentially reacts only with sulfite preservatives. Neither of these products will remove the histamines found in all types of wine that are responsible for wine headaches and the wide variety of other side effects. Both products will react with the antioxidants found in wine and can dramatically deteriorate the taste and quality of the wine.

Do The Products Change The Taste Of Wine?

All of our PureWine® products remove the histamines and sulfites that cause the symptoms of wine allergies (intolerance). They also have a terrific additional benefit, the bitter tastes and noxious odors are also removed from the wine at the same time. Through this process, the natural flavors and aromas of some wines will be noticeably enhanced, thus making the wine taste “smoother”, “more rounded” and “less bitter”. So not only are your wine headaches eliminated, but the wine will be even more enjoyable, just what the winemaker intended!

Here’s Why Users Love PureWine…

Works Incredibly Well!

They work!!! I usually can’t drink reds without my sinuses blowing up and eating Benadryl for the rest of the next two days… So far half a bottle with the filters on two different days and not a single sniffle. Highly recommend. I don’t how they work and truthfully don’t care…. They do and now I can drink reds again!!

Cute Idea For A Gift

This was purchased to add to my friends 50th birthday gift. She is a wine enthusiast and is excited to see if they actually work. Will update once she tries it. Item received incredibly fast - very happy! Thank you!!

Worth Every Penny!!!

Went from not being able to drink wine at all to having two full 6 ounce classes with one wand! A little bit of a stuffy nose but absolutely no headache!!! Definitely worth a try.

Conversation Starter

My first box was a 4 pack. I didn’t really think it would perform like it did. AMAZING! I have rosacea so wines aggravate the condition. Not anymore! Absolutely no face flushing. No more groggy headaches either. I’m a bargain seeker so purchased the largest box with my next supply - the more you buy, the better the price. For those singles in bars (sorry, married), it’s a conversation starter. Just saying….

Worth A Try!

I sometimes get wine headaches and/or hives from the histamines. I will also buy organic wine to minimize some of the added sulfites. I bought the wand on a whim to see if it worked. I’ve used them twice and so far no headache, no red cheeks and no allergic reaction! And it doesn’t change the taste of the wine.
