Wine

Best and worst

Several studies, along with anecdotal evidence, suggest that wine can trigger asthma attacks, possibly due to the presence of preservatives called sulfites (also found in dried fruit and shrimp). 

Other studies suggest it might be the alcohol itself or another ingredient of the libation.  

But still other studies found less asthma and less severe asthma in people who drank red wine. Given the mixed research, watch your intake and avoid it if it seems to be a problem.
