In brief: Should be ok

There is no contraindication to taking paracetamol together with alcohol.
However if you are unwell enough to be taking medications, should you be consuming alcohol at all? Food for thought..

In brief: Yes

Main problems are too much paracetamol (more than 4g or 8 tablets) or too much alcohol that will cause a dangerous combination.
If these things are carefully attended to the odd glass of wine with paracetamol should be safe
