Depends: You are 32 years old and having a coronary bypass? If that is the case, you should be a lot more worried about what you need to do to avoid getting more arteriosclerosis than you are about whether you can drink wine. Safe drinking limits are 2 glasses (5 oz. each) per day in men and one glass per day in women; more than that puts you at risk of further health problems.
