  1. Gotta die from something….let it be wine!

  2. What’s the big deal? Does anyone actually drink this plonk?

  3. Then I am shocked I am not dead yet!

  4. Grace Ma'at says:

    This is crazy. So pretty much, stay away from California wines.

  5. Why was I able to buy a bottle on this list yesterday? Seems like they’d pull it from the shelf if it’s that big of an issue!


  7. Two of my favorite wines are on this list! I drank some last night!

  8. Wondering if this was financed by high-end wine companies. Were only cheap wines tested? Is it possible to get the complete list of wines that were tested?

  9. Read this article all the way to the end, and there you will see the copyright as 2015. What the heck,!!!

  10. Where is the arsenic coming from? water? barrels? grapes?

  11. Peter Shaw says:

    I believe it comes from the seeds. Stone fruit like peaches and plums have higher levels, that’s why they remove them before making wine. I don’t think that it’s a concern. Just someone looking to sue for a profit.

  12. What a poorly reported news story. Not a word as to how the arsenic is getting into the wine. Not a word about an attempt to contact any of the wineries for their comments on this.

  13. well I guess I’m dead, I drink or have drunk most of these.

  14. Ali Johnson says:

    Yikes. This redefines the term “rot gut”. I actually have a bottle of one of these in my fridge for my friends who are democrats.
