Buying wine before cruise?

We are flying into Santiago and taking transportation provided by cruise line to Valparaiso (we leave on the cruise that day) We would like to buy some Chilean wine prior to leaving on the cruise from Valparaiso. Will we be able to buy duty free in the dock prior to leaving? We are on Oceania

You will find that it is cheaper in a local supermarket.

I understand that the ships dock at Muelle Prat in Valparaiso. Does anyone know if there are supermarkets close to the docks so that we can buy wine within walking distance?

If you are arriving at the airport in Santiago and going straight to Valparaíso, you will go through an arrivals duty free area on your way to passport control. You will get better prices in a supermarket but the logistics of trying to fit that in may be difficult. It depends on how much wine you want to buy. If you are in Santiago for a night, then there are many supermarkets and wine shops everywhere.
