When it was do you drink water then de l' was marked wrong and just l'eau was the correct answer . But in this question when I put le vin the answer is du vin.

boire L'eau = drink THE water (definite object -> definite article) boire DU vin = drink (some) wine (indefinite object -> indefinite article)
