I don't really drink, especially not wine, but I know what you are saying about TES opening your eyes to things in the really world that, for whatever reason, you've overlooked in the past. I was never a person to look at landscapes or the sky at night and think "Wow, that looks amazing". I first took notice of things like this after playing Oblivion and I do it all the time now.
Funny story, before Oblivion came out, I was 18 and my friend got some mushrooms that people had been saying were very good so we ate them. They looked different from the regular "magic" psylocibin mushrooms, they had white spots on top, but lots of people we knew ate them so we weren't too concerned. Apparently, I ate too many and tripped so hard I had no connection to the real world at all for about 4 hours. When I came back to the real world, I was hand cuffed to a stretcher in the hospital. Several months later, Oblivion came out and I immediately recognized that Fly Amantia mushrooms as the ones I had eaten. I did some research and discovered not only was that what I had eaten, but most of the alchemical ingredients in Tamriel are real and have some very serious side effects. I wouldn't recommend anyone take these mushrooms. Between medical bills (luckily I had insurance), fines, and missing work to go to court, it cost me $1,200 USD. I can laugh about it now, though.
Lol yeah you shouldn't mess around with amanitas, most are deadly poisonous. Fly amanitas do have some psychoactive effects but you really need scandinavian or siberian ones or else you'll get a minimum high and maximum nausea, or in your case, a very bad trip.
