A lot of drinkable wine has already gone this way in Europe.
Again, don't judge a wine by its container, whether it is a pure varietal, or aftermarket reblend.
Find what you like. Forget all the "rules" governing food pairings. They are usually nonsense. Basically, if you are drinking with food you just want something that doesn't overpower the food or vice versa. Really no different than pairing a beer with food.
Oenophilia or its more respected winophilia is nothing that should cost you a lot of money nor be set in stone by the tastes of others.
The higher priced wines, outside those wines created to help insanely stupid attempts to demonstrate one's palette, are a function of consistency from bottle to bottle or lack of supply due to lower levels of yield whether due to unforeseen circumstances or due to the nature of the grape and process used to make the wine itself (Eiswein for example).
Stroll down to your nearest wine store and ask for something drinkable. If your taste buds are not completely those of a toddler opt for something a little dry with light to medium body and a light finish. Hard to go wrong there.
Once you try a few bottles or cartons you can give better feedback on what you enjoyed and what you didn't. Just be honest. Wines snobs don't usually sell wine successfully. A good wine store clerk or owner will be thrilled in helping you find what you like.
Drink a few gallons for me.
