Yes, in some people: Drinking red wine causes headaches in some people, but white wine doesn't cause a problem. The cause for "red wine headache" is uncertain, but is likely due to a chemical in red wine. Also, drinking beer, wine, or liquor causes flushing (red skin) and some headache, in people who get too much aldehyde (from alcohol metabolism) when drinking alcohol. The aldehyde problem is a genetic condition.See 1 more doctor answer

Why do I have a headache that starts a few minutes after 2 ounces of white wine, while other people have no problem?
Everyone's different: Headache from wine is suspected to be caused by histamine and tyramine in wine. Histamine can dilate blood vessels and tyramine can raise blood pressure which can lead to headaches. Some people seem less able to metabolize these two chemicals or are more sensitive to their effects.

Difficult: The cause of headaches with moderate wine drinking is a mystery; some people find that red wines are worse than white; is this true for you? While much has been written about sulfites in wine (antibacterial), there is no good evidence that this is the culprit; there are many biological active compounds in wine and any one of them could be a culprit for any person; some say delectus wines are diffe.See 2 more doctor answers
I keep getting severe headaches every night at the same time after having a glass of red wine and dinner?
It's a migraine: Wine is a common migraine trigger. Cluster headaches are also triggered by alcohol and often occur at the same time every night, but they usually start immediately after ingesting alcohol. Sulfites occur naturally, but are also added to wine as a preservative and are at least in part are responsible for headaches. Vodka is less likely to cause headaches because it is pure alcohol, but it also can.

I always get a slight headache+nasal congestion after my 1st beer. This goes away by the 3rd beer. Same with wine. Why? How to make this go away?
Gustatory Rhinitis: Non-allergic or gustatory rhinitis is acute onset of running and congestion after exposure to certain foods or drinks. Your symptoms might be explained by your exposure to alcoholic beverages. Certain nasal spray's can dry the nasal passages and can be used prior to exposure to decrease frequency and severity of symptoms. Ask your Allergist for more details.

Its possible: There have been several controvertial issues/reports regarding these products. I would stop them for a week or so and see if mood and headaches improve. If both issues return after restarting then I think you have your answer.
