widespread presence
Explanation:
Depends on specific context - in general terms this normally relates to "widespread presence/diffusion" throughout an area. (but does not relate to wine any way).

More context (i.e. the full sentence) is needed to establish how the phrase is used and its actual meaning.

agree  Katherine Zei: "widespread visibility"? just putting out other alternatives for "presence", which tends to be too Italianified.
