The verb "facere" often takes a double accusative construction like this (in the example sentence both "me" and "sick" are accusative).

Are you sure that vinum isn't nominative here? It's neuter so it has the -um ending in both the nominative and accusative singular.

Vinum is the nominative indeed. I wasn’t talking about it in my comment.
