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!
