General & Family Physician 's  Response
thanks for the query,
well according to research wine consumed in small doses is said to be good for the heart but it is better you do not take this as a reason to have more wine everyday as anything in excess is bad for health and there are other organs like liver which are affected by excess of alcohol.
take care.

Psychiatrist Dr. Alok Ranjan's  Response
THERE HAS BEEN LOT SAID IN FOVOUR OF WINE OR ALCHOL,BUT THESE RESEARCHES ARE PRE MATURE AND NARROW.
IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO QUIT ALCHOL IN ANY FORM AS ALCHOL CAUSES SUDDEN INHIBITION OF ELECTRIC SIGNALS TO HEART WHICH MAY WORSEN THE DISEASE.
NO DOSE OF ALCHOL HAS FOUND HARMLESS.SIDE EFFECTS ARE FAR MORE THAN BENEFICIAL EFFECT O,ON THIS BASIS WINE SHOULD BE AVOIDED IN HEART DISEASES.
