Does alcohol (approx 2 glasses wine daily) affect a person who is on Wellbutrin?

The one significant concern would be that Wellbutrin and alcohol can both lower seizure threshold. Combining them could put you at a higher risk of seizures. I'd recommend talking to your doctor to determine if / how much alcohol is safe in your situation.

Only to the extent that alcohol is a depressant and you are taking an antidepressant.

Hi, drugs.com says: "Using buPROPion with alcohol may increase the risk of uncommon side effects such as seizures, hallucinations, delusions, paranoia, mood and behavioral changes, depression, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, and panic attacks. On the other hand, sudden withdrawal from alcohol following regular or chronic use can also increase your risk of seizures during treatment with buPROPion".
