A friend of mine asked me a question over Shabbos, and I didn't have an easy answer for him.
Let's say that someone had some old grapes that fermented by themselves, so that they're now a kind of wine, but not anything that a person would necessarily drink. There's alcohol content, sure, but it doesn't look good, and it doesn't taste good.
Is such wine subject to yayin nesech (the prohibition to drink wine from gentiles, due to concern of idol-worship)?
I suppose the question hinges on whether the prohibition has to do with the alcohol content of the liquid, or whether people call this liquid "wine."
I'm thinking that it's probably not a problem, because it doesn't feel very likely that such wine would be used to worship, as it's certainly not quality wine, but I'm curious to know if something like this has been discussed in halacha.
