Might be the dose: First off, wine is not an aphrodisiac. The reason people drink it is to reduce anxiety and inhibitions. And like most things that reduce anxiety, it has a lot more affects than just reducing anxiety, it reduces alertness, makes you sleepy, etcetera. However, if it seems to work at first and then you fall asleep, try taking less. Realize that you are balancing reducing anxiety and reducing energy.

Red wine: Too much of a good thing is no good for you. That said, drink a glass of red wine but do it slowly and don't get a refill.

No: You would have to drink a lot of wine and take a lot of sleeping pills.
