The action is to wine. (Note: there is also no “d” to be enunciated at the end either!)

Definition from the 2nd edition of Cote Ce, Cote La Dictionary:

wine: “to rotate the waist and hips in a suggestive manner. ‘Wine like yuh eh christen.’–to defy all known laws of gravity, vertebral contortions, and coitions.”

Definition from Webster’s New World Dictionary: whine–to utter a high pitched sound, nasal sound, as in complaint. To complain in a childish way.
