Wine, particularly red wine, in moderation is good for you, but should not to taken to improve your health as in a medicine.

The substance that is in red wine in general, and Pinot Noir in particular, as well as in red grape juice, tea, and other products, is called resveratrol. It can help stave off such diseases as hypertension and some cancers.

This does not mean you should consume a bottle of Pinot every day. Two five or six ounce glasses is recommended. On special occasions you might have some more.

One can't forget to consider the state of mental health. Some times, may require higher doses than others! WP

That's right: one's mental health is inversely impacted by one's physical health, so if you must reduce wine intake for cholesterol reasons, you must then increase intake for mental stability...
