In brief: How much wine?
If you drink wine very day, the calories can certainly add up.
Red wine has about 150 calories a glass, and white has around 84. Here's a site where you can check further: http://caloriecount.About.Com/calories-wine-ic1410 if you drank only 2 glasses of red wine a night, that's 300 extra calories a day. A pound of fat = 3500 calories, so you'd gain a pound about every 11 days at that rate.

Yes, food and drink are not just calories -- they are information for one's physiology also.

In brief: Yes
For 2 reasons: 1.
Alcohol is converted to fat by the liver. 2. Alcohol makes us make bad decisions. Like what we put in our mouth.
