Red Grape Vine (Vitis vinifera) is a large, deciduous tree in the Soapberry family (Vitaceae), native to the Mediterranean region, central Europe, and southwestern Asia, from Morocco and Portugal north to southern Germany and east to northern Iran. There are currently between 5000 and 10,000 varieties of Vitis vinifera grapes though only a few are of commercial significance for wine and table grape production. It is a liana growing to 35 meters (115ft) tall, with flaky bark. The leaves are alternate, palmately lobed, 5 – 20 cm (2-8in) long and broad. The fruit is a berry, known as a grape; in the wild species it is 6 mm (0.25in) in diameter and ripens dark purple to blackish with a pale wax bloom; in cultivated plants it is usually much larger, up to 3 cm (1in) long, and can be green, red, or purple (black).

In fall, when the leaves in the vineyards turn red, substances are formed which help with a number of medical problems, including blockage of the blood flow in veins, circulatory disorders in general as well as couperose, a weakness of the capillaries in the nose, cheeks and chin. In the case oft he latter, alcoholic or hot beverages (including soups) should be avoided. Red Grape Vine leaves may be alternated with Horse chestnut (), Witch Hazel (Hamamelis virginiana) and Butcher’s Broom (Ruscus aculeatus).

History: Wild grapes were harvested by foragers and early farmers. For thousands of years, the fruit has been harvested for both medicinal and nutritional value. The first written accounts of grapes and wine can be found in the Epic of Gilgamesh, an ancient Sumerian text from the third millennium BC. There are also numerous hieroglyphic references from ancient Egypt, according to which wine was reserved exclusively for priests, state functionaries and the pharaoh.

The ancient Greeks introduced grape growing and wine making to Europe. Hesiod in his Works and Days gives detailed descriptions of grape harvests and wine making techniques, and there are also many references in Homer. Greek colonists then introduced these practices in their colonies, especially in southern Italy (Magna Grecia).

The Etruscans improved wine making techniques and developed an export trade even beyond the Mediterranean basin. The ancient Romans further developed the techniques learnt from the Etruscans, as shown by numerous works of literature containing information that is still valid today.
