"Spill the Wine" is a 1970 song performed by Eric Burdon and War. Released as a single in the spring of 1970, it was War's first chart hit (but not the only single which charted during Burdon's time with the group), reaching the top five and eventually peaking at number three. The song has been covered a few times since, most notably by The Isley Brothers for their 1971 album "Givin' It All Back", but also by The B-Side Players, Juan Ma y su Sonido Costeño, Rabbits And Carrots, Los Mocosos, Melvin Sparks, Alexander Zonjic, Michael Hutchence, and The Dream Syndicate.

In 1996 it was remixed and released as a single again.

Lonnie Jordan said in an 2008 interview that Eric Burdon is the first latin rapper in pop music.

It was also a top three hit in Canada and Australia.
