The grape is one of the most important horticultural crops in the world with an annual production greater than 77 million tons in the year 2013. The majority of harvested fruit is processed into wine, but it is also consumed fresh, processed into raisins, juices, jams, etc. Grapes, wines and derived products contain large amounts of phytochemicals especially phenolic compounds which offer health benefits.
