Ok. So. I'm VERY new to this. My wife and I have discovered, through a friend, that we actually like wine. Normally, when either of us drank wine, it was like, INSTANT headache. I mean, literally, from like two mouthfuls. However, someone had us try a Wehlener Sonnenuhr Riesling - Spatlese that was AMAZING! So, I told my other friend, who works at some wine place and studying to test for being a sommelier. She then suggested, based off of that, Moscato's and Gewurtzraminer's. We liked 2009 Fetzer Gewurtzaiminer. Luccio Moscato d'Asti, 2009 Krueznacher Kronenberg Riesling Auslese and finaly La Perlina Moscato d'Asti and my wife likes the Pink Moscato. Does anyone have a pictures of labels they can send us of other wines, similar to these, that you could suggest to us?

Thank you in advance for any assistance you are able to provide, it is greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the WineBoard! This is an interesting question. I don't know if we can send you pictures but we can probably point you to some wine labels online that will help.

First, I'd like to ask what you were drinking to give you headache? Red wines? Sparkling wines? White wines? We can be more helpful, if you let us know what caused your problems. It looks like white wines are not giving you headaches. Is that correct??

Hi DRey--,
This is a question all wine drinkers pose at sometime in there discovery of wine(s). I know those headaches very well. Ouch! and I've been drinking wine for 50 years. I've asked many wine "experts", winemakers and other who have made the following recommendations. Initially keep notes on the wines you drink, most importantly, the producer, the vintage, and THE PRICE. You should soon discover similarities in wines that give you the headaches. Another thing, one prominent winemaker suggested I take an antihistamine because many wines have histamines naturally. I did this for awhile but because I preferred not to take a pill to drink wine I stopped. My suggestion, buy quality. I almost never get headaches anymore. Ask your clerk for recommendations. Good luck and welcome to this forum.
