Allergies to red wine are fairly common. The reaction can be from the alcohol, or from chemicals called salicylates that are found in grapes. Most symptoms are apparent within minutes of drinking the wine. If you have any of the following symptoms, you may have an allergy. It is not necessary to see a doctor unless the symptoms are extreme or last longer than a day.
