Why does red wine make my rosacea flare up?

But if all alcohols are vasodilators, why does red wine in particular seem to provoke flushing? After all, the NRS surveys show that around three-quarters of alcohol-related flare-ups of rosacea are due to red wine. Wolf suggests the possibility that tyramines and histamines contribute to redness: These chemicals, which can produce various allergic reactions, are found in much greater quantities in red wine than in other types of alcohol.

Wine Spectator gives the answer.
