  • 10 affordable wines for wine connoisseurs

    I had a wine friend with a 20,000-bottle cellar. It held a stunning variety of wines, including some of the world's finest and most expensive. His everyday wine, his "house" wine, was a $10 cabernet sauvignon from Chile. Oh, and he bought it by the...
