Thank you for your input,

Red wine directly does not cause black stools.

Black stools can be due to some food, certain medicine, upper gut bleeding.

So in this case important is to rule out upper gut bleeding, which can be a serious

condition. stool tests and gut endoscopy are the tests that should be considered if there

is persistent problem of black stools.

I hope this answers your question.
