Notsosicklygirl is on the spot, sulfites is your trigger. Same for me. I used to eat dried cranberries containing sulfites and it would give me headache. I removed them from my diet and regular wines too. I had sulfite-free wines for a while (expensive and hard to find), Now I am adding them back in my diet. So far so good but I never drink more than 2 glasses of any alcohol (that too occasionally).
