Calories are calories so it shouldn't matter too much. HOWEVER, it appears alcohol in your system may lower your metabolism. See here:

I am not an expert on this (or anything nutritional, actually), so I'm not sure how accurate that is. Basically it sounds like if you are going to exercise, you might want to do it before you drink the wine, otherwise you are burning fat less efficiently.
