I don't know about wine nutrient, but GF beer doesn't absolutely require nutrient.

I tried it both ways and seemed to get faster, more fervent fermentation with it, YMMV.

Also, some claim that by adding nutrient with DAP you can reduce some of the sorghum twang.

I used it before without realizing this. For a couple bucks why not throw some in.
