Spiritually there is a belief that the drinking of wine is, or symbolizes, the imbibing of Divine life and power. Drinking, not necessarily of wine, in a dream may indicate our need for comfort and sustenance. Drinking - the taking in of liquid - symbolizes the interplay between the inner need to sustain life and external availability of nourishment. It also suggests our requirement for emotions that flow rather than getting stuck. To be drinking in a dream is to be absorbing or taking something in. What we are drinking is also important, e.g. fruit juice would indicate we are aware of the need for cleansing and purity. The colour of what is being drunk is also important.
