This Week In Wine 101: Why Do I Get A Wine Hangover?

We’ve all been there, laughing having a good time with friends, conversations become more interesting as bottle upon bottle are opened – drinking ourselves into either a happy state or a stupor. Only to wake up the following morning feeling as though you are dying a slow and horrible death. Every movement and every sound irritates and only amplifies the usual hangover symptoms you are currently experiencing. Then at one point you find yourself asking, “how is this possible? Last week I had more to drink? I nearly drank a whole bottle of vodka and I wasn’t hung over at all. Why do I feel so awful?” So, what has changed and why did I get and how do I deal with a wine hangover?
