My husband is french, and we live half our lives in Paris. Wine, especially red, is a necessary part of my daily diet. I work it in, how ever I have to!
That said, I don't think adding it *specifically* to help cholesterol is that great a plan. It probably does help, and we know that alcohol breaks down meat (you can tenderize with it) so that helps, but only if you already love it. It's very easy to go overboard (been there, looked at teh whole bottle and said 'wait, who drank this' heh), and it does pack some serious cals.
If you love it, add it!
Just trying to learn to eat right, before i worry too much about cals.
