In brief: Depends on person

While red wine is a more common migraine trigger than white (possibly due to the Amino Acid tyramine), there is significant person-to-person variability.
Keeping track of your personal triggers is the best approach overall.

In brief: Red wine

People who have migraines have different triggers.
One common trigger for migraine headaches is red wine; although their are many people who are predisposed to migraine headaches for whom red wine is not a trigger. Each migraine sufferer must learn their own triggers. For more information, see: http://understandingmigraine.blogspot.com/

In brief: Any kind

Red wines are not an infrequent cause but it is very personal and there is no general rule about any of the numerous trigger factors in migraine.
