Wine for acid-intolerant types?

Jon | Jan 2, 200407:51 PM     7

I'd like to develop my wine pallet, but my stomach doesn't react well to very acidic drinks, such as certain wines, OJ, Margs, cider, etc. - especially if combined with rich or spicy foods (which I love).

I don't have acid reflux or any diagnosed problems, I'm just simply prone to heartburn or indigestion when the bevs consumed react strongly with what I eat. I've had some wines where there was no problem, and others that woke me up at 3 a.m. - but I have no idea as to strategies I can employ in advance.

To help remedy this, I was wondering if there should be certain characteristics of wine I should be looking for when ordering/buying? Or if there are varieties/brands/countries I should try?

Thanks in advance for any insight.
