There is enough room for branded international grape varieties as well as tiny volumes of indigenous, unusual varieties. There's more choice available than ever before.

I think it's very positive if consumers can differentiate. Some mainstream consumers will become interested in wine and will start to look for more unusual varieties, but the classic varieties provide a global benchmark.
