A question from God

The density of bread compared to bedrock should have some interesting geological & gravitational effects. Oh, wait, make that wine-sodden breadrock.
A transformation of water into something vaguely resembling wine could be achieved by the addition of ethanol plus concentrate.
If left unchecked, the consequences of this powere would be not dis-similar to a spillage of soft-drink concentrates adjacent to an oil-leak.
The question is, what causes a boundray of a miraculous transformation. In the biblical story of transformation we are told that the water was in skins - so we can assume that the effect must be contained within some kind of dead animal skin or is contstrained to a region of effect (e.g. the room where these skins were caused).
What if the reaction were to somehow auto-catalyse in an unbounded envrionment (e.g. an ocean) - this may result in a near instantaneous transformation of all seas into brackish salty undrinkable wine.
You do not want this- believe me- you do not want this.
