The Doctors: Wine Allergy Remedy?

Dr. Stork said that 30% of people suffer from some sort of red wine intolerance. One of the reasons for this is because when wine is fermented, yeast is used which can create histamines in the wine. These tend to be more prominent in newer wines and they lesson with older wines.
Researchers have spent the last 16 years developing a yeast that eliminates the histamine. The results? Hypoallergenic wine. Check out this new red in the video below.
