Weinber

Austrian dialect name (wine berry) for the grape, whereby the "n" is pronounced like an "m" or swallowed (Weimber or Weiber). A single grape or also raisin is called "Weinberl", whereby the "n" is pronounced like an "m" or swallowed (Weimberl or Weiberl). But this is also the name for a protection child or an informant. To “soak up” means “to ingratiate yourself with someone”, so to speak “to want to be the raisin in the cake”.
