Alcohol Spanish & Italian wine no Preservitives no Af

Adding this news to your site. I've been Drinking Spanish & Italian Wine as they do not have the Presertives that Australian Wines have. Guess what with no AF. Alcohol is my trigger as well.

Great news for myself as I can now have a wine.

Just thought I would let you all know as it may help some of you out there. Let's know if it works for you.

I used to drink almost nothing but Spanish wines, mainly Rioja and Tempranillo. It was a trigger for me.

Any particular ones? I've not noticed any Italian ones that I've had have to be sulphide free.

Can anyone recommend any wines or ciders that dont have sulphites sold in the UK? I would love to try them.

I've just been through my stock of Spanish & Italian wine including Rioja, Chianti, Tempranillo, etc. (having a look not tasting!) and they all have sulphites. The European wines tend to have the lettering a lot smaller and not always in English so it's more easily missed.

Marks and Spencers do a red and white (think rose too) sulphite free.

the trouble with some wines as I have come to understand it ,is they are bottled in Britain with wine that comes over in big vats on ships with all the preservatives in for the journey , I would always check the labels and make sure it is bottle at origin just a thought

The problem is ALL wines have some sulphite in and as there is no legislation to ensure they tell us how much they just have to say it contains SOME.

I got s 'sulphite removal chemical' from NZ to add to my wine, but it didn't make a difference. I try to drink Organic wines if possible - Waitrose do a few good ones, but I think it's the alcohol that's my trigger not other factors.
