Anaphylaxis following the ingestion of wine was found in a non-atopic woman. The reaction occurred within 15 min of wine ingestion but did not follow other alcoholic beverages. An immediate skin test response to the offending wine was found but specific IgE levels could not be measured by radioallergosorbent testing.
