While not a wine maker, I do make wine, cider and perry (all sort of wines?). Do not discount the flavor additions from the yeast. These can and do alter the flavors as much as beer yeasts do. It wasn't just the region's grapes, but the yeast that lived on the grapes that made areas famous. If you want a blend of wine and beer, blend wine and beer, if you want fruit beer, make fruit beer, but it won't be the same.
That being said, good luck!
