Grapes aren't really that bad to feed in moderation. They are high in Vitamin K among other things. When concentrated white grape juice got a bad rap as a sweetner, grapes got tarred with the same feather, unfairly IMO. I also don't see any reason to think the vines are likely to harbor more bacteria than the grapes themselves... both should be washed thoroughly. I do agree with Mike that grapes are good item to choose organic -- grapes are one of the dirty dozen foods most likely to be significantly contaminated when conventionally grown.
