Die Lehrer trinken Wein

Is the verb to drink in the sentence "Die Lehrer trinken Wein" right? It shouldn't be trinkt?

Die Lehrer is plural, so it would be trinken since trinken is the conjugation for 'they'. Der Lehrer is singular, but when it is plural only the der changes to die, the word itself does not change for this particular noun. It would be "Die Lehrer trinken Wein." for the teachers, and "Der Lehrer trinkt Wein." for the teacher.
