Meteorite wine comes down to earth in Chile

As if there weren’t enough gimmicks in the world of potable liquids, word has come out recently of a British fellow named Ian Hutcheon making wines in Chile that are infused with meteorite. Read about the whole process here.

Naturally, it’s ironic given that wine growers are trying to imbue their wines with flavors from the soils in which the grapes grow not elements that fall from the sky. Someday maybe I’ll taste this and see if it makes a difference, but whatever the case, it’s definitely given Ian a great deal of press including a bit with video on BBC Mundo.
