I have a problem with sulfites too. Wine, and anything cooked/marinated/whatever with wine. Also most commercial dried fruit. It sucks. For me, I get a migraine.
I have found that rice wine and rice wine vinegar work great when you need something like an oil and vinegar dressing.
Seriously, it seem like wine is in everything, especially Italian and French cooking. I even went to a nice pub and literally half the menu included some kind of wine-based sauce.
Add to that the fact that I also have an issue with sodium nitrite (any processed meat - bacon, pepperoni, hot dogs) and dark chocolate, and life really starts to suck. VERY short list of okay foods.
