Histamines just happen to be the same shape and size as other pathogens that come our way.

What are histamines and why are they in wine? This is the question Cellars Wine Club hopes to answer in their latest article. It is explained that sometimes wine can cause small allergic reactions by harboring these pesky compounds.
This article by Cellars Wine Club shows that many wines contain these chemicals, although normally it too small a quantity to cause problems. Histamines, it is shared, are actually part of the natural production of wine, in larger concentrations in some wines than others. White wine, for instance, is reported to typically contain fewer histamines than red wines.
But why exactly do they cause problems? It has to do with the body's immune response system, Cellars Wine Club details. Histamines just happen to be the same shape and size as other pathogens that come our way. Because the body thinks it's being invaded, it sounds the alarms (sneezing, itchy eyes and nasal congestion).
