There are currently between 5,000 and 10,000 varieties of Vitis vinifera grapes, cultivated on every continent except for Antarctica, but only a few are of commercial significance for wine production. As a food, the leaves of V. vinifera are filled with rice, onions, and minced meat of lamb, pork or beef, in a traditional dish of Balkan called ‘dolma.’ Dried fruits called raisins are enjoyed in Europe and North America, and the seeds are processed as an oil and used in cooking or in salads. In traditional medicine in Europe, the sap of grapes was used to treat skin and eye diseases, and the leaves were used to stop bleeding.
Several epidemiological and clinical studies around the world have pointed out that the moderate intake of wine produces positive effects on anti-oxidant capacity, lipid profile and the coagulation system, that may be associated with the decreased incidence of cardiovascular disease, overall mortality and other diseases. Grape seed extract has been the focus of many phytochemical and clinical studies and a popular anti-aging ingredient of cosmetics for the last decade.
