Yes: IF you are of drinking age and not known to be allergic to grapes. Your med history and other medical history is not known. But generally, it should be OK.

Yes: Wine in moderation (in the context of an otherwise healthy active adult ) is OK to have and may offer some health benefits for your cardiovascular system. I would not recommend any alcohol consumption if you have a personal or family history of alcoholism, and the most important aspect is to keep the amount to only 1 (5oz ) serving daily.
