why the sentence is "Il vino è per mia nonna" not "Il vino è per la mia nonna"?

Because your grandmother is a close relative, it is just understood you are talking about your grandmother; therefore the article isn't neccessary. The same would apply to my brother, my mother, my uncle; but not for the plural forms.
