Mark – Very interesting! And it makes me wonder if certain hybrid grapes wines, with their assertive unique flavors(think Frontenac – cherry aroma, Front Gris – apricot aroma, Labruscan types with their “labruscan” aroma) might find a ready market in other parts of the world. I realize that the most recent “buzz” around foods and wines is “buy local”, but given there are differences in flavor preferences, there may also be tremendous opportunities for hybrid wines in other parts of the world. Just a thought.
