If drinking a glass or two of wine gives you headaches, facial redness, or a general hangover-ish pain, you’re just like the 70 percent of drinkers who suffer from wine allergies, and there’s finally a cure that doesn’t involve giving up the beverage for good (because yeah, right!).
Wine allergies are caused by two naturally occurring components in wine: histamines (chemicals that are made by our immune systems and found commonly in aged or fermented foods and beverages, like wine) and sulfites, which are often added to wine to preserve it. Men and women of all ages can suffer from wine allergies, but they can also be triggered by genetics, diet, and certain drugs.
