Migraines and tannins

Wines that should be okay:

The lighter color the wine, the better.  Slightly green or very clear wines are usually safe. Most pinot grigios are fine, though some German pinot gris do have tannins.  Chablis are often fine.  Sake, rice wine, is fine.  Too much alcohol of any sort, however, can cause headaches for reasons other than tannins.
