Honda has a point in the sense that the turning of the wheel does not provide enough leverage/pressure to push the cork into the bottle. You could jerryrig a base to hold the bottles in place, but the torque will most likely snap off the wheel at the first gear. You also have no way of compressing the corks (that I can see from the photo), so that's working against you.
You COULD use it to put crown caps on champagne bottles. Lol, that would be a way to 'use it for wine' in a sense.
Nice thought though! And still a great conversation piece for partys.
