Love a party with endless wine (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

adore

Here is my best explanation:

'love' is the definition.

(adoring is a kind of loving)

'a party with endless wine' is the subsidiary indication.

'party' becomes 'do' (do is a kind of party).

'with' is a charade indicator (letters next to each other).

'endless' means to remove the last letter.

'wine' becomes 'red' (red wine is a kind of wine).

'red' with its final letter taken away is 're'.

'a'+'do'+'re'='adore'

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for adore that I've seen before include "Love greatly", "Worship, venerate", "Cherish", "Love to distraction", "Revere", "Treasure", "Love, revere intensely", "Love, worship", "Idolise" and "Respect deeply".)
