Very normal, alcohol causes dehydration because it is a diuretic. Try drinking water before you go to bed or drink less wine.

hello drew and thank you for the fast reply. actually i do drink water before i go to sleep but it doesn't stop there because it happens all night as well, literally. i think you are right in saying i should drink less than a 750ml bottle at times. thanks....

try drinking before you drink...this makes suer that you are properly hydrated to begin with...
