Actually, I was not questioning whether she was showing allergy to the wine.
From what you described, it certainly sounded like the wine. My wife has
all sorts of food allergies (bannana, avacado, breen beans, ...)
Fortunately she has not reacted to any of my wines. I would not recomend
this this to anyone else but if it was me I would test myself by scraching
my arm and then rubbing some of the offending wine into it to see if I
reacted. But frome my understanding, food allergies usually cause
something like hives or throat constriction rather than sneezing.
