Minimum drinking ages have varied radically over the years. In the US before the Revolution (please, I know it was not the US at that time) there was no minimum drinking age. Many parts of Europe allowed teens and children to drink to a degree. I don't recall the time period that Clockwork Orange was set in, but it is quite possible they have changed, been abolished, or many people at that time simply ignore it.

This movie is set in the future. It's anyone's guess what the legal age would be. I think the drinking age in the UK is 16-17 so it wouldn't be too far off. Also, wine isn't as strong as, say, whiskey or vodka.
