I drink quite a bit of wine myself. I have tried them all. Myself, I have not had any problems or reactions to White Zins, White Merlots, Malbecs, Moscatos, Shiraz or Merlots. If your worried about the cork issue, try a screw on cap. Those types of wines are becoming more and more popular and are just as good if not better than corked ones. I prefer Malbecs from Argentina and have not had a problem at all. I tend to turn red across my chest and neck when I drink red wines, however my internst tells me its a high histamine level, not my celiac. I also like organic wines from our local wineries. Well, within our state. We're not exactly the climate for growing wine grapes in Montana, but there are a few wineries in the Northwest part of the state and they have FABULOUS wine and mead. Good luck!
Thanks! We have a few wine shops here in town (and one Winery about an hour away)... so I think I will try and visit with them later this week. I've talked to one on the phone - but I got the impression she didn't know as much as she implied.
My understanding is like yours, US wines are considered safe but international wines still put wheat paste around the plug of the barrel to form the seal. The catch is some US wineries get their barrels from international wineries so there could be some cross contamination. My take is wines that are "unoaked" meaning stored in metal casks shouldn't have any cc and fewer sulfites so easier to handle. I have a wine drinking buddy that has problems with oaked wines and sulfites so try to drink those wines but she'll drink any good wine put in front of her. :) I drink wine quite often and haven't had any problems that I'm aware of, unfortunately my 1st glutened symptoms are the same as when buzzed or drunk but the intestines haven't kicked in after drinking so I'm thinking I've been fine.

Hi. Many (Most) of the wines from BC, Canada are gluten free ... they have a grape base and do not use gluten additions. However, you can ask at your liquor store and they will be able to tell you. More difficult is getting a gluten free beer ... we haveonly found one in our area of the world.
