You're probably not allergic to them, and they're not causing your red wine headaches. So why does everyone freak out about them? Let me tell you all about how the sulfite scare happened and how there's actually way more sulfites in foods than in wines.
This piece means a lot to me, and I'm really proud of how well it was received within the wine community. Since usually the reactions I get are from people who are commenting on the internet with no knowledge on the subject, who really didn't even read the damn thing, it is very rewarding to have people I admire in my industry react positively. Wine professionals have to battle the sulfite myths regularly, and I feel very grateful that I was able to bring this issue to a large audience, and hopefully teach some people some things.
