Hi, Fiona,

I'm weighing in here, because botany is one of my favorite topics!

This looks like your most likely candidate:

I hope you can figure out from your context whether you are dealing with "red grape leaf" or "grape seed extract," since both appear to be popular amongst herbalists. I'm betting on the leaf, though:

"Fox Grape
Vitis labrusca
Common purple grape, also known as Concord Grape, but not including red or green grape.
Parts used: Fruit and leaves
A tea made of the leaves can be drunk for diarrhea, hepatitis, stomachaches, and thrush." www.thebearbyte.com/Herbalogy.html

In any case, the second page I've given you, above, has a very detailed discussion of the parts of the plant that are used in herbal medicine, and what it is used to treat.

If you are translating for an American readership, I'd recommend using "fox grape" (common name for V. Labrusca) [cf. Fernald, Kinsey and Rollins, Edible Wild Plants of Eastern N. Amer., 1958, Harper & Row, p 272] or "Concord grape".

Searching Google, the scientific name I most often find mentioned with the "cépages teinturiers" is "Vitis vinifera." It is mentioned as good for blood circulation. Searching for Vitis vinifera + blood + circulation, I find the following:

An explanation, from a site on the background of wine, of "cépages teinturiers":

Le cépage est la variété de vigne. Il en existe des milliers, mais les vins sont élaborés à partir d'une centaine, tous
appartenant à l'espèce Vitis Vinifera...
Chaque cépage a des caractéristiques qui lui sont propres : Leurs couleurs sont très diversifiées, depuis le jaune pâle au noir, en passant par l'orangé, le rose, le rouge, le gris, le bleu ou le violet. Généralement, dans les raisins de cuve, les éléments de la couleur sont situés dans la peau. Pourtant, il existe des cépages teinturiers, dont la pulpe est colorée; mais ils sont aujourd'hui interdits, sauf l'Alicante Bouschet, qui est encore toléré.

While I happen to be a big fan of poke [pokeweed/pokeberry/etc.], I don't think that is what is meant in this case. One of my favorite spring vegetables is the young shoots of the poke plant, and one of the first I learned to gather (my mother took me out to find poke when I was just 5).

Poke is Phytolacca americana (P. decandra). The roots, on the other hand, are highly poisonous, with large amounts of phytolaccin; the seeds in the berries are quite poisonous, too, although the juice from the berries has been used as a spring tonic; most often, the berries are used as a dye. My daughter, when she was studying fabrics, used pokeberry dye to good effect in some of her felted creations. While I was a student at the University of Kentucky, a graduate chemistry student whom I knew worked out the chemical formula of phytolaccin: it is one of the few poisons out there not related to any others. In any case, poke is not at all viniferous. Here is the description from Fernald, Kinsey (yes, it's the same Kinsey who did the Kinsey report) and Rollins, Edible Wild Plants of Eastern North America: "tall, coarse herb, with large, alternate, entire, elliptic, pointed leaves, the principal ones often 6-10 inches long; the tall stems becoming purple and bearing opposite the leaves long-stalked, slender clusters of blackish-purple, 10-scalloped, flat berries."

Best regards,

Yolanda

tenturier varieties


Explanation:
cépages = variety of vine/grape (Collins)

teinturier French Meaning literally "dyer", any of a number of grape varieties having red flesh and juice, rather than the usual white. Most red wines get their colour by extracting pigment from the skins of dark grapes, but teinturier varieties can be used to boost the colour of pale wines. Called tintorera in Spanish.

Vigne rouge

Indications

JAMBES LOURDES - VARICES - FRAGILITE CAPILLAIRE CUTANEE (COUPEROSE, ECCHYMOSES)

LA PLANTE DE LA CIRCULATION

Cette espèce ligneuse et grimpante issue des cépages teinturiers est la plante par excellence des problèmes circulatoires (jambes lourdes, varices, hémorroïdes ou encore troubles circulatoires liés à la ménopause).
La feuille renferme des anthocyanosides, lui donnant à l’automne une couleur rouge sang si caractéristique. Ces anthocyanosides ont une remarquable activité vitaminique P, diminuant la perméabilité des capillaires et augmentant leur résistance. Ils évitent ainsi la stase veineuse.
Cette action angioprotectrice est augmentée par la présence de tanins, astringents et vasoconstricteurs, qui favorisent le retour veineux.
Parmi ces tanins, les proanthocyanidols ont une action contre les radicaux libres. Ils sont stabilisateurs du collagène présent dans les membranes des vaisseaux.

Vigne rouge
(famille des vitacées)
Nom(s) commun(s) : vigne à vin, lambrusque
Nom botanique : Vitis vinifera
Nom(s) anglais : vine, grape vine
Partie(s) utilisée(s) : la sève printanière, les fleurs, les feuilles que l'on cueille en été, les baies crues et les graines.
Habitat et origine : originaire d'Europe méridionale et d'Asie, la vigne est aujourd'hui cultivée dans toutes les régions tempérées du globe. La vigne apprécie les sols argileux et riche en silice de même qu'une exposition sud.

Vitis Vinifera
A little botany to understand the vine

Everything relates to the botanical family of Vitaceae, which has about 50 species. One of these is Vitis, which is subdivided into two species: muscadiniae and euvitis.
It is this latter which interests the winegrowing world. It has 22 species classed into three groups according to their geographical origin. The European one is Vitis vinifera (in turn divided into two subspecies, sativa, the cultivated variety, and silvestris, the wild one) from which thousands of cultivated varieties have been derived, in order to produce the best wines.
If Vitis vinifera is fundamental for production of the type of grape, with white berries or red berries, other species of North American origin are just as important: these phylloxera-resistant types saved European viticulture and are used as rootstocks.
