Remembering the Seventh day
Yes, that is fully permitted on the eve of Saturday night (Erev Shabbat), because it is a normal activity that a Gentile / Noahide could choose to do at any time (being mindful of any health concerns, of course).
In the traditional Jewish liturgy, the blessing to G-d before drinking grape wine or grape juice, referred to in Hebrew as "borei peri ha'gafen" ("Who creates the fruit of the vine") is:
"Blessed are You, L-rd our G-d, King of the universe, Who creates the fruit of the vine."

By the same token, it is fully permitted for a Gentile / Noahide to drink some wine or grape juice at the time of his Saturday night meal, and to make that blessing before drinking it.

Of course, that blessing (and any other blessing that one makes) is ONLY permitted to be said if the person has in mind that with the words "L-rd our G-d, Kind of the Universe, Who creates...," he is referring ONLY to the One True G-d, Who is the G-d of Israel.
