Why is most wine grape wine?

I read recently that over 99% of wine is grape wine and was curious why this is? It's to the point that overwhelmingly we assume "wine" is the grape variety, though other types certainly exist. Is there a reason beyond the fact grape wine is simply more established? Lots of fruit (blueberries, for a very general example) share many qualities with grapes and similarly come in a relatively diverse array of varieties. Why has nothing else been established and finessed to the same degree?
