Similarly, you may ask, can you use green grapes to make wine?
It will produce lower alcohol due to the lower sugar content of the grape, and higher apparent acidity. If you mean 'green' as in the colour of the grape, like those green grapes sold in produce departments of grocery stores, the answer again is yes; however the grape in question may or may not make great wine.
Also, how many pounds of grapes does it take to make a gallon of wine? 20 pounds
Also know, what grapes do you use to make wine?

Can grape juice ferment into wine?
Yes and no. If you juice grapes and leave the juice in reasonably clean conditions, the first thing that will happen is that the natural yeasts on the surface of the grapes will convert the sugar in the grapes into ethanol (the alcohol on wine).
