How many Histamines are in wine?

Red wines typically contain higher levels of histamines than whites wines, but white wines are still not histamine free. Red wines can have anywhere from 60-3,800 mg of histamine in the wine. White wines have about 3-120mg and Champagnes have anywhere from 15-670mg of histamine.

What are histamines?

Histamines are a compound of amines. Amines are compounds of amino acids that form together to make proteins. In foods where protein degradation takes place in the production of the food (cheese, fermented veggies, alcohol) there will be amines.

What are symptoms of histamine allergy?

Symptoms of Histamine intolerance (HIT) include gut issues such as IBS, stomach aches, nausea, and other general digestive issues. Other symptoms include skin irritations, respiratory issues such as sneezing and coughing, headaches, and dizziness. For people who have HIT, enjoying a glass of wine after a long day is anything but relaxing.

Story of Low Histamine wines

An Italian wine consultant Sebastiano Ramello started a project to create low histamine wines so that his his mother could enjoy wine again. Mr Ramello found wines from Italian region of Piedmont that were produced by Veglio Michelino & Figlio that had less than 1.5mg/litre of histamine in the wine. Working with this vineyard, Ramello was able develop wines that contain less than 0.5mg/litre of histamine. These wines were further officially certified low histamine wines. Following Veglio Michelino the 2nd winery, Peri Bigogno, developed the wines with histamines content below 0.5mg/litre and received Low Histamine certification.
