Our mid-scale boat red is 2010 Aurocano Humo Blanco Lolol Pinot Noir, which drinks like a Premier Cru Burgogne for about $15. Our mid-scale white is the 2010 Montes Leyda Sauvignon Blanc, a wonderfully crisp Sancerre-style at around $14. From this price point upwards, there are so many superb world-class wines that Sequitur's cellars are bulging.
Thanks for the ideas. I hope these fine wines can be found outside Chile. We live in Hong Kong and the selection is somewhat limited. Most wine stores only have a tiny section on New World Wines and what they have tastes like it got boiled inside the top-most 40 foot container on the way over here.

Just another good reason to go to Chile, I guess!

Re: We Have Returned to Patagonia

Very interesting journey and blog. I'm interested in the same route you propose to S. Africa. What route did you follow from Vancouver to Puerto Montt? Surely you didn't motor down the whole coast of S. America into the Humboldt. Thanks, Jon
