If you don't like the flavor of red wine you can just add more broth. Also if you prefer you can use white wine. 
I have made this soup many times, it is easier of the bones are cut separate. Sometimes when boiling the ribs I will add a few sprigs of fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary for extra flavor
I have also added carrots and that is a great option
