Chile's Concha y Toro winery has just increased its already wide range of wine offerings. The company has released two new brand lines: Xplorador and Terrunyo.

Xplorador will be priced at about $8 per bottle, placing it between Concha y Toro's Frontera and Casillero del Diablo lines. The Terrunyo line will be priced between $20 and $30, thereby putting it near the top of Concha y Toro's hierarchy, with only the Don Melchor Cabernet costing more.

Wine Spectator recently rated two of the Terrunyo bottlings in the Oct. 31 issue. The Cabernet Sauvignon Maipo Valley 1997 ($29) scored 88 points, and the Sauvignon Blanc Casablanca Valley 1999 ($20) scored 86 points. Look for more ratings of the two new brands in the upcoming Nov. 15 issue.
