why Sie is used in between, we can simply say "bitte, trinken mehr wein" . Is that correct or not?

The polite imperative form requires the personal pronoun, hence your anwer doesn't work.

Imperative:

2nd pers. sing.: Bitte, trink mehr!
2nd pers. plur.: Bitte, trinkt mehr!
polite: Bitte, trinken Sie mehr!
