wine

1. The fermented juice of a plant product (most commonly the grape), consumed as a beverage. Synonym(s): vinous liquor
2. A group of preparations consisting of a solution of one or more medicinal substances in wine, usually white wine because of its comparative lack of tannin. No specific wines are officially designated for such use, however.

An alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes. In moderation, wine consumption lowers the risk of heart disease, an effect attributed to polyphenols in the grape skins—which is thus higher in red wines—including resveratrol, which is optimally absorbed in the mouth
