I'm trying to look for a red wine that is organic and without added sulfites? Any suggestions. Something cheap would be great. Thanks!

Trader Joe's has a couple of them, if you have one in your area.

ehhh... Back at home I do. But where I'm staying at right now just has Kroger's and a couple of liquor stores.

Well, first see if they have any organic wines at all, then maybe you'll get to choose between two (if you're lucky...I think TJ's only has 2 or 3 at the most).

In case you didn't know this, even if a bottle says "contains sulfiltes" it might not contain _added_ sulfites. Something that confuses many people -- causing needless arguing about one of the joys of life.

Yep. Grapes have sulfites.

I have been partial to Jadot - bougelois (sp?) villages. Not sure about the sulfites but it is good.

Just to side track for a moment. Could sulfites cause you get a headache? There is a Sebastiani that causes my wife to get splitting headache with one glass. She is also prone to headaches so I am wondering sulfites could be the cause and in other stuff which would cause headaches.

Sorry about the hijack

Yes, that's common.

Reminds me of the whole "nitrate free" bacon....which still has nitrates.

2 buck chuck merlot seems to work for me....but I don't drink a ton of it.

Grass-fed beef has trans fats too.

LOL, there's just nothing left to eat anymore at all.

My vote is for Carlo rossi. No idea about sulfites, I just know it comes in a big jug and is cheap.

Mostly just because drinking wine out of a jug makes you look cool.
