Round here OB we use grapes to make wine
Being English, you must know that in this country, people make do. Or, make wine with anything that comes to hand. It was a total revelation to me when I first lived here, that people made wine. Unheard of in Holland.
Mind you, I had a friend, a chemical engineer, who made liqueurs of a strength that made your hair stand on end. Very tasty and very iillegal!
