8 Top Wines of Chile

So, I spend a week in Chile and this is all I can come up with? A list of eight wines. What a slacker!

Well, truth be told I’ve got several lists in the works, all with many more than 5 wines on them, but I wanted to get the ball rolling while the wines were still fresh in my mind. These are 5 wines that really stood out during my recent tastings in Chile. Some are great values, others simply awesome, but all are worth a look.
