Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Benign Enlargement of Prostate which is very common at this age.
Please consult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and following tests to confirm the diagnosis.
1) Routine urine examination.
2) Haemogram
3) Blood sugar levels on empty stomach and 2 hours after lunch to rule out Diabetes.
4) Ultrasound scanning of the abdomen and ultrasound scanning with rectal probe. to detect enlarged Prostate .

Further treatment will be decided by him depending upon his clinical findings and reports of these tests.

This is unlikely to be due to red wine.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you
