    It's a play on words with wine and dine:
    verb (inf=to wine and dine, wines and dines, wining and dining, wined and dined, wined and dined)
    1. (transitive) To entertain someone to a fine meal.
    2. (intransitive) To eat lavishly.
    Wining and whining are pronounced the same. Your attempt at translation is good, but of course it does not carry the joke.
