I see you had the correct translation of fæddur.

"Að vísu er það satt," kvað hann, "því að eg var þar fæddur er hvorki
skorti vínvið né vínber."
" Sure it is true" says he " because where I was born there was no lack of
vines and grapes" [knows what he is talking about]

I thought Tyrkir was acting funny because he had been EATING the grapes and
maybe some of them were fermented!
