Possibly: Persons may develop allergic antibodies to the componets of wine (grape) or beer (barley, rye, hops) or even to the brewer's yeast. Some are also sensitive to the perservatives used such as sulfites. Un-sulfited wine is available in most wine shops. If consumption of any food or beverage repeatly results in an allergic symptom, then you are by definition allergic, regardless of the mechanism.

A 20-year-old member asked:

I got a rash from nose-chin after halloween. I had 3 antibiotics, nothing happened. Could it be an allergy to chocolate/gluten/milk/lecithin....?

Unlikely: It would be unusual to have a persistent rash for two months after eating halloween candy. Skin inflammation from continued exposure to a skin irritant or allergen like cosmetics would be more likely although i don't know what your rash looks like. An allergist or dermatologist can patch test you to common causes of rash (contact dermatitis).
