In period recipes, 'weinbeeren' AFAIK can mean fresh
grapes, especially in northern dialects (it's still
'winbeer' in Low German). In modern German, though,
fresh grapes are 'Trauben'. Weinbeeren in retail
refers to a gently dried white grape that gains a kind
of greenish colour in the process. I don't know if
that is what you'd call golden raisins, though, I
haven't had the opportunity to shop in an American
outlet in years.
