If you walk into many liquor stores, you will a large variety of wines, some foreign and a number made here in the US and the prices vary from inexpensive to as much as some of the better foreign wines.

However, a recent study has shown that many American wines contain a number of additives or ingredients that make some refer to it as dirty wine. Check out this report:

“Nutritionist Kristen Coffield says, ‘wine is big business and wine has become a commodity and commercially made wines have a lot of additives.’ Additives that nutritionists like Kristen Coffield and allergists like Dr. Talal Nsouli say can cause serious reactions, ‘We are seeing more and more patients with some type of adverse affect to wine’.”

“Wine drinker Regina Chavis, ‘white wine tends to give me a headache.’ ‘it was pretty unsightly, a rash up my neck on my face over my eyes,’ says coffee shop owner Andrea Smith. These women are part of the nearly ten percent of wine drinkers who have wine intolerance.”

“Melissa Schutte told 7 On Your Side, ‘Within a couple minutes of taking my first sip of wine my face was on fire it felt really really hot. I went to the restroom and looked in the mirror and my face was beet red’.”

“Why do so many of us get this type or reaction? The answer lies inside the juice and what you don’t know that can hurt you.”

“Coffield says, ‘Grapes are on the environmental working groups’ dirty dozen list. That means that they are grown with more chemical pesticides, fertilizers and fungicides than any other produce’.”

“Federal law allows wineries to add up to 250 chemicals in the winemaking process: enzymes, sulfates, yeast , CAN BE added to enhance color or taste, or to kill bacteria. AND ACCORDING TO ONE UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON STUDY ARSENIC WAS FOUND IN ALL BUT ONE OF THE 65 WINES IT TESTED. A report just released in the American chemical society’s journal of agricultural and food chemistry reveals that materials used by some winemakers in the filtering process could be transferring heavy metals into their wine.”

“‘The wineover that people get’, says Coffield, ‘is mostly from the chemicals and the added sugar.’ Then there’s the milk, fish bladders, cow stomach byproducts used in the clarification process.”

Winemaker Adam Drici of City Winery in DC commented:

“There are a lot of things you don’t have to tell the consumer you’re putting into the wine. And there are legal limits for them.”

“At the end of the day, you don’t even know what’s going into that bottle of wine.”

If you are one of those who has had a reaction after drinking American wine, it just may be that your reaction was due to ‘dirty’ additives in the wine. Best recommendation is to not buy that brand of wine again and try another brand until you find one that you do not react to. The other recommendation is to drink responsibly and don’t drive after drinking.
