I use glass for long term aging, beer or wine, and plastic for short term (primary) fermenting. Wine is fine in plastic primaries, and it's a very common way to do it. I would never say that "glass is for wine and plastic is for beer". That's not true, and is way too broad a generalization.
Many people use only glass, and many use only plastic. It is a matter of personal preference.
