wine o

noun; analogy
A person who consumes excessive amounts of wine for the specific purpose of getting drunk to avoid their problems in reality
 
The term wine o stems from the metonymic connection between those who drink wine and the wine itself. Here, wine (an alcoholic beverage) has undergone a shift to represent a person who consumes a great quantity of wine. The term wine o carries a negative connotation, something not normally associated with wine itself, due to the fact that 'wine o's typically consume wine to the point of abuse.
Etymology : Derived from the word 'wine' and appending the suffix -o
Source : Club baseball teammate (October 2008). Quote: "There was a wine o sitting outside the gas station today begging for money so he could buy more booze."
