I used to work at a winery. Red wines are in tank for a much shorter time then white wines. Reds are transferred to barrels fairly quickly in the process. So I'd imagine, white wines would have a higher concentration. Although, I must say, I was unaware that the tanks they ferment in were coated with anything. Maybe not all wineries do this?
Also, the EU has sent limits as to BPA levels in European wines. So, if you are concerned then buy wines from countries in the EU.
Personally, I try to limit my exposure as much as possible. Unfortunately, like most thing of this nature, it's really hard to rid 100% from your diet. Hopefully the FDA doesn't blow it again and reverses their decision about BPAs.
