Marinate pork tenderloin in a large resealable plastic bag with balsamic vinaigrette and rosemary springs, in refrigerator for 1 hour.

Place 1 cup of red grapes and 1 cup of green grapes on a baking sheet lined with a silicone mat.  Roast the grapes in the oven for 45 minutes.  Immediately transfer grapes to a plate and set aside.  Take the remaning grapes and puree in blender or food processor.  Strain grape puree through a fine mesh strainer, set aside.
