Taborga and Melania Wine: Thank You Chile
We don't cover a lot of wine on our site, leaving the bulk of wine coverage to our sister site, Cheap Fun Wines. In fact, we don't know a whole lot about wine, though we do know two things - we're really liking South American wines, and we're not afraid of inexpensive bottles. That's why we're so excited about two Chilean wines we've discovered - Melania and Taborga. We've sampled a couple different bottles, and not only do they taste great, but we're in love with the price tags too - everything hovers around $10 for some fine-tasting wines. We recommend picking up a bottle the next time you're in the wine aisle.

Taborga Table Wine
($5 suggested retail)
Red (12.9% ABV)
White (13.4% ABV)
An economical Chilean Table wine made with the same care as our varietals but at significant savings. These medium-bodies vintages exhibit fresh and aromatic hints of wild flowers with exceptionally fruity flavors.
($8 suggested retail)
Chardonnay (2004; 13.3% ABV)
Cabernet Sauvignon (2004; 13.3% ABV)
Melania is the result of meticulous selection from among the best grape varieties produced in the region. From the hand-picking of the grapes to the 12 months of aging in Chilean Oak, we have created what may be the best Chile has to offer in an every day varietal.
MELANIA “Coleccion Especial”
($13 suggested retail)
Chardonnay (2004; 13.7%ABV)
Cabernet Sauvignon (2003; 13.0%ABV)
Merlot (2004; 13.9% ABV)
Elaborating on the idea of choosing only the most exceptional varieties, we have expanded one step further to bring you the “Coleccion Especial”. These 3 varietals are the absolute finest, non-reserve, wines we could bring you from Chile’s best vines. These exceptionally priced values are sure to win your affection.
