In brief: Maybe. Maybe not

Write down everything you ate or drank that night.
...If the same thing happens again, bring all the info from both times to an allergist.

In brief: 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.
