  • you are probably having an allergic reaction. just red or all wine? red has sulfites in it and is notorious for headaches and allergies.

  • the headache comes from the high amount of sulfides in most red wines. try eiswein its a sweet white wine that is renown for its smoothness. also try port its low sulfide content and high alcoholcontent usually work well for me.  the sore throat could also come from the high acidity of wine, or there could be an underlying condition...
