What's a sulfite?

My friend knows someone who has an allergy to sulfites. Apparently it's quite serious for her. I've heard the term "sulfites" before but don't know what they are or how they wind up in food. Can someone help me with this? I think that I've seen a warning label on wine bottles before that says "contains sulfites", but that's the extent of my knowlege on the subject.

    Great answer, thanks. My friend's friend can breathe ok, but apparently gets lots of rashes and hives when she drinks wine. It's pretty crazy.
