* ''Anime/CaptainHarlock'': Harlock's trademarks are scars, eyepatches, and wine, in roughly that order. While he's more of an AntiHero, many of his actions could certainly be seen as unlawful and he's actually portrayed as the villain in ''CosmoWarriorZero''.

* ComicBook/EmmaFrost did this quite often when she was an Comicbook/XMen villain. As stated about villainesses, she preferred champagne. Her tastes changed after joining the team, where her spirit of choice became whiskey out of a flask in tense situations, but she still prefers a glass of chianti when relaxed.
* Doctor Doom has been shown lounging about on thrones or in throne halls with glasses of what one can only assume is a wine variant of one or other.

* Immortal caveman conqueror ComicBook/VandalSavage can tell the year and region of a wine by the sound of it being poured, and refuses to drink anything newer than 1,000 year old vintage.

* WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick had a glass of dark-looking eggnog held in her hand during her second part of "Dreamworks Vs. Disney". While she's not [[AntiHero technically]] a villain, but she [[KickTheDog kicked Nella]] rather badly during that episode.

* In ''Film/TheSilenceOfTheLambs'', Hannibal Lecter famously announces, "A census taker once tried to test me. I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti," before making a hideous slurping sound.

[[note]]The choice of Chianti here suggests a minor bit of fridge horror: Lecter paired a mundane but enjoyable wine with a mundane but enjoyable meal.[[/note]]

** And the first game where Dracula does it is ''Castlevania'' for X68000, later ported to [=PlayStation=] as ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaChronicles''.

Note that red is seen as a lot more sinister than white wine, due to its [[ColorCodedForYourConvenience Color Coding]] and general connotations with blood. When a vampire (usually richer and more refined, not one of the [[OurVampiresAreDifferent biker vamps)]] drinks red blood from a wine-glass, it invokes much the same imagery, and it's possible that villains drink red wine specifically to invoke the vampiric example.

* In the original novel of ''TheSilenceOfTheLambs'' it was a "big Amarone" and not "a nice Chianti". Still a red wine from Italy, though. The change in the film was probably a case of SmallReferencePools. [[note]] However, in a bit of FridgeBrilliance Chianti is made in the area around Florence, where Lecter settles after his escape.[[/note]]
* The titular Count in ''{{Dracula}}'', [[IDoNotDrinkWine does not eat or drink]]. He does however know enough about fine wines to provide Johnathan Harker with "a bottle of excellent Old Tokay" to have with supper.
* Double Subverted in ''Discworld/CarpeJugulum'', where the human subculture of vampires are considered freaks because they file down their teeth, wear bright colors, stay up past noon, and [[IDoNotDrinkWine drink... ''wine'']].
* Other than smoking Russian cigars and drinking champaign, ''Literature/{{Marzena}}'' is a big fan of ridiculously expansive Petrus, and we also have Livia who drinks grape juice in a wine glass.
