Place 4 medium-sized plates in the oven at 200°F (100°C).
In a small saucepan, reduce red wine with sugar on high heat for about 5 min, or by slightly more than half. Add fruit and cook for 1 more min. Set aside.
Heat a skillet on high heat and melt butter until it begins to froth. Cook scallops for 1-2 min on each side.
