In brief: Not a true allergy
Red wine can trigger headaches by affecting blood vessels.
It is not an allergic reaction as it is due to a non-immune mechanism, but you would still want to avoid it.

In brief: Not allergy
Headache is not an allergic symptom. This is a common side effect of red wine.
There is no way to treat this to prevent the headache; all you can do is avoid drinking it.
