During the wine fermentation process, there is a release of sulfur dioxide. In addition, wine makers often add sulfur to wine to prevent spoiling. It may be possible that sulfites cause headaches, but there is no scientific data to support this claim, as of 2015. Bottles of wine sold in the United States containing sulfites must feature this information on an attached label.
