Most Ecuadorian wines are sweet and made from grape, apple, peach or other fruit; however, some good, dry wines are now being locally produced. The cheapest way to enjoy it is from a cartón (yes, a box) from the local supermarket. Clos is a good brand. Fine wines from Chile, Argentina, France, Spain and Italy are also available.
