I drink rarely and I buy cheap stuff. I love wine coolers, but the ones I like aren't gluten free. I think I've found a cheap replacement with Arbor Mist White Zinfandel Exotic Fruits. I hope.

I googled and it says most white wines are gluten free with few minor exceptions. I am sensitive to gluten, not celiac, so microscopic amounts probably don't matter. But I couldn't find anything specific.

So what was the consensus on white wine?

Almost all wine is gf. In fact I haven't found one that has gluten.

Have you tried hard cider? That's a good replacement for wine coolers.

I agree. I'm particularly fond of Angry Orchard apple ginger as I await the Woodchuck autumn brew. (Though I admit to being stumped as to where the gluten would come from in wine.)

No, I will add that to my list.

That sounds yummy. I will add it to the fall rotation. :D

I like Angry Orchard too. Although it might be the name that does it for me. I love the name!

I didn't know they make autumn flavors.

Yeah, I don't even bother to check for gluten in wine and I'm very sensitive to tiny amounts.

Cheers to you all. You can drink wine and enjoy M&Ms, gluten free isn't so bad. Who said eating gluten free was hard. (kidding) :lol::lol: Add some Rice Chex and you're good for at least two meals. For lunch you get bacon.

Yes, I've already opened the bottle.

Just to clarify: Woodchuck makes seasonal flavors. Only the autumn brew gets me all excited, though. Angry Orchard - and I love the name and artwork, too - has the apple ginger all year. I like Hornsby's as a nice, apple-y, refreshing drink, too.

Warning: BOXED wines are not GF. Use only bottled wines. True story. Filtering process for boxed wines uses gluten product.

Yes, it's awesome. I also like the newer one, what is it Apple Cinnamon.

:lol::lol: There's a little more alcohol in that bottle than in the Boone's Farm one. Oh, wait I usually make a spritzer with that. I didn't last night.

:svengo:

So we could make a list. Things not good in a box:

Wine - bad, not gluten free
God - bad,
Curriculum - bad for us, we tried, didn't work

Things good in a box:

Chex cereals - the gf ones
Boxes brought by UPS, FedEX, and USPS - smiley face boxes are the best
Cat litter - as opposed to a cat who gets litter all over the house.
