Wines in Colombia

Ok. I´m not a great expert on wines but I do drink a bottle or two a week. Here in Medellin one can find a fairly good selection of wines, with those produced in Chile being dominant in the market. Compared to California they tend to be expensive. Most that I would consider range between 18,000 pesos and 30,000 pesos. This comes out to around $US 9.00 to 15.00 based on an exchange rate of 2000 pesos per dollar. They also tend to be toward the bottom of the overall price range.  These represent day-to-day consumption material. I am still far from knowing the full story even here.  

Many are in the 30,000 to 80,000 peso range (15 dollars to 40 dollars) per bottle.  This puts them beyond the grasp of most Colombians but fits fairly well into a middle class budget, at least for occasional use.

As time goes by I plan to make comments about the various wines I try here.
