For what it's worth, here's the Perseus LSJ entry for OINOS.

One should note that there is nothing here which indicates that OINOS
was used to mean grape juice. Indeed, when when looks at the fact that
when one wanted to refer to any other fermented beverage, OINOS is part
of the detonating expression (see def 2), one wonders whether OINOS
could **ever** have been thought to connote non alchoholic juice.
