some of us have wished we could know why a gatherer can have white wine (a dot) but not red wine, etc.
my DH is a home winemaker so I asked him: could it be sulphites? and he said no, since whte wine has at least as many sulphites, (a fact not well known)
so I asked...could it be acidity? he said no again....so finally her figured it could be histamines, which are in the anthocyanines, the colorbodies, ......which made some sense...except that hunters have moreallergic issues, don't they?
whatdya think?

And Warriors are the opposite.  Red wine good, white wine bad.  Funny thing is, red wine sits on my tummy fine.  White wine gives me a tummy ache.  So I guess I already knew what I was supposed to drink.  What about blush wines?  They are my favorite, but I don't know if they're considered red or white.

FYI, blush wine  is made from from red grapes, so it's probably considered a red wine.

From: Wine Lover's Companion: blush wine
Called blanc de noir or ros in France, blush wine is an American generic name given to wines that vary in color from pale pink to apricot to salmon. Such wines are generally produced from red grapes by quickly removing the skins from the juice after the grapes are pressed. This technique stops the transfer of color from the dark pigments in the grape's skin, and the wine continues its processing as for white wine. Introduced in the United States in the late 1970s, blush wines found popularity in the early 1980s as the white-wine boom took off and producers searched for a channel for the red-grape surplus. Today, some producers create blush wine by mixing red and white wines. Blush wines usually go by other names, such as blanc de pinot noir cabernet blanc white zinfandel or pinot vin gris. Most of these wines are slightly sweet, although some are quite dry with just a whisper of residual sugar. Wines labeled vin gris are usually fairly dry and often have some wood aging.

I am definitely interested!

so far my hub has had to drink most if not all of the red wine bottle he orders when we go out.

there s this great steak house in Acapulco where you can bring in your own wine for dinner.....my hub bought me a nice white dry Riscal wine bottle, and I had a glass of it every night during our 4 day stay last week.
they kept my bottle chilled during our stay.....where there s a will.......lol
