You still have 'beer goggles' on, and see alcohol, alcohol everywhere. The 'wine' there is the pure blood of the grape (Christ's pure life) mixed with 'water' (ways of men), and thus diluted the pure gospel, weakened it, even as is done by those who teach alcohol drinking is sanctified by the word of God, when it is not.
Isa 1:8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
Isa 1:19 If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land:
Notice, the context, speaks of the 'good of the land', which when later in the next few verses speaks of the 'wine' (juice of the grape), it is speaking of that which is from the harvest and winepresses, and that which is the 'good of the land', even from the 'vineyard'. It is not speaking of alcohol at all which is from distillation, and from machination.
2Co 2:17 For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God: but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.
