Neh 13.15 is not that certain.  The press was a "wine-press" because it was 
used in the production of wine (after it was also fermented).  I hardly think 
that it was thereby referring to the intermediate product (grape juice) as 
wine.  The Jer and Is references are of a similar nature - the reference is 
to the ultimate product.
