Yes, wine is gluten free. It is made from grapes, not grain.

That said, there are situations where very small amounts of gluten can be added to wine post-fermentation, during the winemaking process. One is is a flour-based paste used to seal the oak barrels used for aging. Second is a gluten fining agent to clarify wine. In the former case, this practice is rare to the point of extinction. In the second, others proteins, such as egg, are significantly more common for fining—and the point of fining is to remove, not add, elements to the wine.

Regardless, either of these techniques would add gluten on the order of a couple parts per million, significantly under the threshold of 20ppm used to certify something as "gluten free."

Anything made from fruit will be.

Wine coolers sometimes have barley.

I think gluten comes from wheat. So, yes, it is.

Well gluten is found in wheat, some grains.

If the wine is just fermented grapes, then it should be gluten free, unless for some reason they specify it was processed in a facility that might be contaminated with gluten.

If you are only avoiding gluten free foods, but do not have an actual medical gluten intolerance, I suggest you drop the habit. Gluten (bread products, cookies, anything with wheat or flour) is fine as long as you don't consume lots of it every day

most wine, but gluten isn't bad for you, only those who are medically diagnosed as intolerant should avoid it.
