Another method that works is simply to pour some white wine over the stain and leave for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes soak up the excess wine with a teatowel and hopefully the red wine stain should have disappeared.

Further to the above, I've also found that using a nappy/diaper to soak it up can be very effective - it absorbs it all.

Also you could try some ammonia.

Other sites list salt as one that dosen't work, but I just tried it, and it seemed to work quite well. Now you can drink the white wine, instead of spilling it on your carpet!.
