Nutrition related query re the benefits of red wine -if any. Boring details within.

I occasionally wake up feeling.just.fucked; absolutely exhausted for no apparent reason. I won't bore you all with the tests I've had and the different diets I've tried to no avail BUT there is one thing I've found that -while not offering an immediate reprieve, does usually leave me feeling better the next day, and that's a glass or two or three of red wine.
What I wanted to ask though, from the nutritionists among us - was, is it likely that there is some substance within red wine that is actively working this benefit to my system? And, is this substance available in non-alcoholic forms? Or am I merely perceiving non-existent nutritional benefit when in all likelihood any improvement in mood and energy levels can be attributed to the relaxation -inducing benefits of alcohol itself?
