Here's how to avoid that dreaded headache you get after drinking wine

Wine hangovers are truly, THE WORST.

There’s nothing worse than waking up after a serious night on the tiles with a pounding head and a melted brain that you can barely use.

Between white, red and rosé, the sky’s the limit when it comes to having a glass of wine as there’s so much variety available.

However, if you really suffer from those dreaded wine headaches the day after you’ve been drinking, it could be down to a number of things.


According to VinePair, those of us that are fans of a wholesome glass of red should perhaps reconsider.

Red wine is known for being the drink with the most tannins, sugar and histamines. Tannins are natural compounds that can be found in grapes and their seeds but are an absolute nightmare for us mere humans.

Tannins can also be found in over brewed tea which dehydrate you and sugar, well it goes without saying that sugar dehydrates you too. Tannins can be mostly found in cheap red wines and dessert wines.

If you want to cut out headaches altogether, try white wine but of course, drink it in moderation. Drinking water to equal the amount of wine consumed also helps too.
