In brief: Depends on type of
Red wine: "dry" (low sugar) red table wines have virtually little effect on blood sugar levels; "sweet" (dessert wines, ice wines, & late harvest red wines) have more calories, sugar/carbs, & higher alcohol content & may thus affect your blood sugar level somewhat more.
Just remember to drink in moderation & with food to slow absorption of the alcohol.
