Chilean wines

One of the nicest things about New York is accessibility to good (and inexpensive) wines.  For example, Chile produces some of the best value wines in the world, and Puro Wines in Soho is a Chilean wine specialty shop which we visited this afternoon. 

Good Chilean wines, with depth and complexity, can be had for $20.  Access to and acceptance of a diversity of wines is one of the great things about New York culture.  Here, wine drinkers don't care about Chateau Lafite or Petrus.  Many wine drinkers may not even know of them.  Here in New York, I love it that people appreciate variety and quality.  More importantly, people understand quality is not always correlated to price.
