The pressure method is best used immediately after wine was spilled into your carpet. To do this, you need to:
If you don’t have the time to use the pressure method, especially when you still need to attend to your guests, the salt method is your savior. Pour salt over the spilled area and just leave it. The salt will absorb the spill and you can just vacuum it later.
Mix two parts hydrogen peroxide to one part dishwashing liquid and use this to remove the spill and stains. Be very careful in using this method since hydrogen peroxide is a bleaching agent and may discolor your carpet. Before applying this to the affected area, test it out to an obscure part of the carpet to know how it reacts to the solution.
Pouring white wine into the spill will help neutralize the color and keep it from spreading. If white wine is not available, vodka can be used.
Old wine stains are harder to remove. They are already attached to the fibers of the carpet. However, getting rid of them is not impossible.
Wine spills and stains is not the end for your carpet. Try out these DIYs and avoid unnecesssary spending in buying a new one.

I like that you mentioned that the salt method is a good way to take care of the spill while not making a big deal about it to your guests. My wife and I had my sisters and their husbands over and someone spilled a little wine on the carpet. It wasn't a big deal but he felt bad and insisted on cleaning it up, now I know to use the salt method next time!
Fortunately, club soda works just as well today to remove any red wine spill on carpet.
