Avoiding wine headaches

I actually don't have the magic cure to avoiding wine headaches. However, what works for me is eating a huge Italian dinner and then drinking a boat load of water with a few Advil right before I go to bed! People like to blame Sulfites, Tannins, Histamines, ect.... but I think it's just a straight up lack of H2o and a good hearty meal.

Here are a few articles on the subject so you can investigate and see what works best for you:

Red Alert: taming the red wine headache

If you try all these things and still can't figure out how to kick the headache issue, I know of some really good beer blogs out there that are amazing for beer drinkers! In fact I'm in the process of building an in-depth beer blog as we speak! My Beer Blog

Hey Thomas-

I wrote about avoiding hangovers the other day, too. My advice was to avoid the booze beast all together, but of course I wasn't discussing nice wines.

I think you're right though- water is the true culprit of the headache (which is torture!), so being proactive and gulping more water than you want will usually prevent the pain.
