Take a look at the following two sentences:

"She used to drink wine."
"She is used to drinking wine."

"She used to drink wine.", means that, in the past she drank wine, but now she doesn't. Used to describes an action that happened in the past, but doesn't happen now.

"She is used to drinking wine." means that, at first drinking wine was strange and unusual, but now it has become familiar. Be used to describes an action that was, perhaps, difficult and is now easy.
