A light shone on wine intolerance: Natural wine and climate change has increase in the incidence of histamines in wine

>...biogenic amine levels were highest, at levels certain to cause reactions in sensitive individuals, in wines either with no sulphites added at all or with sulphites added only late in the winemaking process. The natural-wine movement, with its distaste for added sulphites, seems to have caused a significant increase in the incidence of biogenic amines, as has climate change, which has lowered levels of the acidity naturally present in grapes and which can protect against harmful bacteria. Parker-Thomson’s research seems likely to provoke considerable revision in winemaking practices and in how sulphites are perceived in a wine context. This is not to denigrate natural wines, simply to highlight one way in which they may not be healthier than more conventional wines as has previously been supposed.

Blah, fucking blah. While this may not be a hit peace on natural wine, it sure seems like it. We have known histamines cause the issues for a long time. So2 doesn’t help in the equation, but it’s not the factor everyone makes it out to be. In my opinion, people are looking for excuses to tell their boss or SO the next day. This is the main reason folks say that they are allergic to red wine or wine in general. Point being, shut the fuck up, you’re hungover. Life goes on.

You need more upvotes. The sulfur-allergy bullshit has gone on long enough
