Nowadays, the grape cane waste, being the side product of viniculture, still has not found its extensive utilization in the production of medicinal and anti-­pathogenic drugs because of different reasons, such as variability and difficulty in the determination of the chemical composition, sophisticated extraction and high lability of target components. High biological as well as commercial (2,000–3,000 $ per kg) importance of the grape cane stilbenes: trans-resveratrol and trans-ε-viniferin makes the research in this field highly promising.
