A large number of people suffer from headache and migraine

In this scenario, red wines are well knowed as a cause of this status;
"Red wine headache ("RWH") is a headache often accompanied by nausea and flushing that occurs in many people after drinking even a single glass of red wine. This syndromecan sometimes develop within 15 minutes of consumption of the wine."
Numerous researches pointed out that headaches and migraines are triggered by the presence of histamines, that are normally high in red wines.

The BENEFITS of drinking a selected and guaranteed LOW HISTAMINES wine explained by the doctor, nutritionist and food intolerance expert Dr. Eugenio Franzero in this research

Low histamines certifies only wines with no more than 0.5 mg/l of histamines level
(the normal histamines level in red wines is from 4 mg/l to 20 mg/l)
This means a highly reduced risk of headaches and migraines.

At the age of 14 he started the oenologist school of Alba;

After graduation (14th July 1987) as agricultural technical with specialization in viticulture and oenology, he started working but continued his studies, and in 1998 the Italian government awarded him the title of oenologist.

From about 20 years he is part of tasting commissions, first for the chamber of commerce of Cuneo, now for the one of Valloria d'Asti. These commissions are the ones that decides if a wine is suitable or not for D.O.C. or D.O.C.G. denominations.


Sebastiano Ramello, Low Histamines and any other collaborator mentioned on this website do not claim any health benefits to drinking wines that will prevent migraine headaches.

Rather, based on the research and the conducted studies, those who normally get a migraine and/or headache with red wine as a trigger, may experience no headaches or reduced headache severity.

We encourage headache and migraine sufferers to talk to their doctor if they have any questions about migraines.
