Generally the most damaging content in wine is the sugars. The sugars encourage bacterial and fungal growth, which in turn can kill the plant.

If this is a potted tree you could try lifting the plant and examining the roots. If they are firm and alive, certainly try removing as much soil as possible and replace.

If this is a tree in the ground and it shows no sign of growth, there is little to do.
