Oh. So when you are drinking Austrian wine you're doing it more or less on site, at the vineyard, or at least very locally. It's not happening in Montana. Correct? It is possible (though not at all certain) that current-vintage wines served in a place like that could on average be less adulterated with sulfites, etc., since typically the main purpose of such is to increase stability in the bottle over time and distance ... e.g., so that when you buy it in Kalispell it's still good.

Even if I have a beer, it's generally only half a bottle until I've had enough halves to pronounce it "safe". I generally blame this problem on a misspent youth. One advantage of having gone totally teetotal for several years is now I'm a real cheap date.

FWIW, I don't blame you.  Its not worth the headache (literally) to sample. 

 

For me, I've taken to some alternative drinks that suit me well instead of thinking "Is this wine going to give me a sinus headache?"

Exactly.  On site, definitely in Austria and if I remember, in Washington, no issues.  But knowing what it is?  :dunno  Plus, it could only be the weather.
