Same. I really don't know how to teach myself when to use "den" or "das/der/die."

Den in this case is the accusative for Der.

Nominativ, used for subject or after verbs like "sein" or "heißen" DER-DIE-DAS-DIE

Der Mann ist alt

Die Frau ist schön

Das Kind ist neugierig

Die Häuser sind hoch

Akkusativ, used for direct objects DEN-DIE-DAS-DIE

Ich habe den Mann kennengelernt

Du hast die Frau gesehen

Ich kenne das Kind

Ich sehe die Häuser

When you will grasp it, you can ask me regarding Dativ and Genitiv cases. I am not native, but had to study it. :)

well there is a sentence that say children drink wine so this sentence is pretty ok

Accusative is the direct object of the verb - so, if it answers the direct question of "what", it is accusative - So the children have - "what?" = the wine - therefore, accusative case - the masculine gender noun is the one you have to pay attention to as it changes from its nominative or subject form.

I got the article wrong, and it told me to use "die" for undefined nouns. What is an undefined noun???

I believe an undefined noun is a plural, or more specifically a plural of which you don't know the exact number of.
