Ian Hutcheon, an Englishman residing and working in Chile, might well be living a dual dream. He not only opened his own observatory, the Centro Astronomica Tagua Tagua, but he also owns and operates a vineyard in Cachapoal Valley. He's dedicated his life to two passions; wine and space. And now he's started combining the two in one bottle.
To make his Meteorito wine, Hutcheon uses a little bit of dust from a rock that crashed into the Atacama Desert about 6,000 years ago. I have no idea how space dust affects the taste of your typical red, but I'd wager that most of the excitement of tasting the wine is just the novelty of knowing there's extraterrestrial matter in there.
If you'd like to try a glass of Meteorito for yourself, better be prepared for a long trip to the retailer. Hutcheon is currently only selling bottles of the stuff out of his observatory. And not only is Chile probably a trek for many connoisseurs, the wine itself is sure to cost you a pretty penny.
