Easiest thing in the world. Find you a wine/homebrew store, lots of them
around these days, and get some supplies and a cheap instruction manual.
Stomp them grapes and strain out the juice. Use the juice to make wine and
the must (stuff left after stomping) can be cooked down with a little water
to make more juice for making grape jelly and syrup. A web search should
give you all the info you need to do it right.
