In the wedding at Cana, does the bible mention if Our Lord actually drank wine on that particular occasion?
Or do we assume he drank on that particular occasion?
Thanks.

Safe to assume He did, IMHO.  But not that important to establish the morality of drinking wine in reasonable amounts.  First of all it's not intrinsically wrong (doesn't contradict natural law), second of all it's recommended in other parts of scripture, third Our Lord drank it in the Last Supper, fourth at Cana even if He didn't drink it He did make water into wine which He wouldn't have done if it were evil... there are probably more arguments, but just to list a few.
