I don't have one yet but I'm sure you can. The Wii U emulates the Wii when playing Wii games so there's no reason you shouldn't be able to.

Dear Sir, Mario Kart Double Dash supported LAN play, which supported 8 consoles to play the same game at the same time.
With a few tricks, we could use this LAN mode to play online against other players.
Nintendo cut out the Gamecube Ethernet port support on the Wii, which meant no online for Gamecube titles.

I would say with 99% certainty yes you can, they did it with the DS mode on the 3DS, you can play DS online games just fine on a 3DS

They cant kill the whole Wii's online librabry, it would be silly
