Good bye Asian alcohol rash, bring on the wine! When I drink any kind of alcohol, the first drink or so will make my face go blotchy red. It’s very not cool and can be quite embarrassing at work functions. I call this the Asian alcohol rash and if you’re Asian I’m sure you’re familiar with this term. On this predicament, my friend who owns a Celebrations and IGA introduced me to a very cool wine preservative remover called So2Go. So sceptically I tested it out under various conditions to check that it really worked – I tried it when I was tired, spraying it in different white wines, even in champagnes. I can’t say it works for all wines as I only drink white wine but under all different conditions, my blotchiness disappeared and all I’m left with are flushed cheeks which actually look quite natural. So ever since then this preservative remover goes with me everywhere and I love it to bits – I can’t believe that I didn’t discover it sooner, it would have been handy when I was working in the art industry going to all the opening nights!
I tested twice with half glasses of red wine. My “Asian Red” symptom gets improved from “red” to “pink” and disappear quicker than before. I think it works for me partially. I also introduced it to some of my Asian friends here. It seems it’s the first time that they heard about this kind of product, and are interested. Kindest Regards, Eric
Is there anywhere in UK that I can get this as I was in Australia recently and it was great being able to have a glass of wine without feeling ill!
As a wine educator and industry consultant, it is great to see an initiative such as SO2go, which should help a large number of people who are intolerant to sulphides enjoy wine without the annoying side effects of drinking wine that has been preserved with sulphides in one form or another. Sulphur is critical in the wine making process and keeps the wine clean, fresh and gives it the ability to age in bottle. As the wine presenter on ABC720 afternoons programme we trialled the So2go in 2008 and there was no obvious change to the taste and structure of the wine that we used the product on.
Hello Claire. I gladly give permission to for you to give my testimonial to anyone, you can also give them my telephone number if they want to contact me. It's just so nice to enjoy a glass of wine with a meal, especially when dining in restaurants, it's so funny to see people look when you put it in the wine, they must wonder what I'm on.
Hi there, I like your product - it allows me to drink wine without an instantaneous headache.
Good afternoon to you Claire. Thank you so much for your response to my queries. You have no idea how happy I am to have found a remedy like this after suffering food poisoning from a major Perth restaurant who saturated their seafood with Sulfur Dioxide about 25 years ago. I love my wines but if it wasn’t low or preservative free I would get a red flush and a severe headache after just one glass. This product gives me so much freedom to choose as long as I don’t forget my little magic SO2GO, I have also told my sisters and friends about it, so once again thank you and good on you for helping people like me.
My son, Scott Baker, who is in the wine trade located a sample for me here in Sydney. Cheap/high preservative wine had been reacting with me so I ran an experiment having the same meal and same wine over two nights, two weeks apart. The result was startling. I had the usual bad reaction and did not sleep well on the first night. On the second occasion, I used SO2GO and had no reaction and a good night's sleep. Hence the recent order. One of my work colleagues says she also can not tolerate cheap wine so I will be giving her a sample SO2GO when I receive the ones I ordered.
I was recently given your product for my birthday, after years of suffering the next morning with headaches and stuffiness. Thanking you for inventing something that is crucial to us wine lovers that have sulphur allergies.
Thank you so much for an amazing product. Just recently, after being frustrated with trying to find preservative free wines locally, I went onto the net and thankfully your site came up. Wow, I was so excited to just read of such a product and immediately got my daughter to get me some SO2GO from Porters, Northwood, close to where she lives. I am a headache sufferer with wine of any type being a major trigger. In fact, for the past few years my reaction has intensified in that just half a glass of wine would react with a headache the next morning. This product of yours works brilliantly for me and now I am able to partake of many different types of wine and enjoy them all. My husband and I were shopping at Vintage Cellars and I couldn't help telling my story and they were so impressed, said they had so many customers requesting preservative free wines and that they would definitely be following this up.
I have just recently discovered this product and it certainly is fantastic, I can now enjoy nice bottles of wine again, without staying awake all night. I can't thank my friends in Perth enough who put me onto this product. I am a very satisfied customer.
I cannot thank you enough for this product! Since the use of sulphur dioxide was increased exponentially around 7 years ago, I have not been able to drink even the smallest amount without side-effects. One glass would cause stomach bloating and cramping, two…and instant ‘food poisioning’ symptoms, complete with vomiting until it was out of my system. Since then, I’ve suffered through a number of hideous preservative free wines, until this Christmas. While pulling faces at pf’s in a south-west bottle shop before Christmas, a lovely gentleman laughed and said “You don’t have to drink that you know”, before pointing me to your product on the counter. A Christmas miracle! I enjoyed many lovely glasses of my old favourites without becoming ill. Since then, my husband (who hated watching me struggle for hours after a bottle of wine), family and friends have become converts and tell everyone about your product. Personally, I can’t understand why all bottle shops aren’t selling it. Not only are there a lot of people out there suffering from the effects of SO2, but there are a lot of people who will develop intolerances. Congratulations on such a simple, yet so life altering product.
I tried it tonight with a bottle I knew was sulphery- it worked!! Can I buy it in bulk?
My order arrived today I am very happy with the service and hope the wife starts to enjoy her wines again with your product.
Hello, I was wondering if you would take orders from the UK? I have just got back to the UK from Perth where I tried your product and I thought it was fantastic!
I recently returned from a holiday in WA which included Margaret River. One of my friend in Mandurah used it during dinner. I think its fantastic.
Thanks so much, Claire, for your rapid and efficient response. We are clearly impressed with both your product and your website.
Hello, First of all, thank you so much for your product! I'm really happy that I can enjoy wine without the embarrassment (and discomfort) of a bright red face. I have already recommended your product to family, friends and colleagues. It really is a brilliant idea.
Thank you for making this wonderful product available. To have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of wine with friends instead of being an inactive bystander is a treat and a wonderful pleasure. Without the resulting body reactions to the preservatives, I can now enjoy a wine without worrying about the "after" reaction. Thank you for making socialising pleasant again.
Thank you very much. I discovered your product at Liquor Barons in Falcon. It certanly does reduce my symptons.
I am so pleased you have come up with this idea. It's great! Wine has caused me terrible headaches since I moved here 3 years ago and no one could tell me why. Well for the first time I have been able to enjoy a glass of wine with everyone else without getting a bad headache but the only worry now is that I managed to drink 2 bottles to myself which is another worry. Many thanks its made such a difference and I'm spreading the word.
Hi there. I have been buying from you and using your so2go sprays for several years ,just receiving another 10 I ordered on the 15th which surprised me no end when they arrived the following day,wowww. I use mine because without it my throat closes on the first sip if I don't. It does that with any diet drink as well and never knew why. I was so glad when I was introduced to this spray by my cousins daughter who had a friend who used it. I seen your Testimonials page and none of them had my problem,so maybe it may help someone with my problem but I did not know how to put it there. I am so pleased with it and I do tell people when ever I get the chance . Once again a big THANK YOU. Kind regards Margaret Wardle.
I purchased your product on the weekend and tried it and found it marvellous!! I love wine but can't usually drink it due to it giving me headaches. Your product definitely worked for me.
