Veglio Michelino & Figlio — a small, family-owned-and-operated winery located in the Piedmont region of northwestern Italy – announced first-to-market two low-histamine red wines, Dolcetto D’Alba and Barbera D’Alba.
Each low-histamine wine contains less than 0.5 mg of histamine per liter. These new offerings meet a growing consumer demand for low-histamine wines, as an estimated 10% of the world’s population suffer from “red wine headaches” (headaches, nausea and flushing that occurs after drinking red wine) as a result of an intolerance to the histamines present in many of the red varietals consumers drink today.
Veglio is available at select retailers nationwide. Both Dolcetto d’Alba and Barbera D’Alba have suggested retail prices of of $16.
