“Astronomer Ian Hutcheon combined his passions for space and wine making to create a Cabernet Sauvignon with a 4.5 billion-year-old vintage. How the hell did he do that? Hutcheon aged the red wine with a 3″ wide meteorite formed during the birth of the solar system, and which crashed into the Atacama Desert in northern Chile about 6,000 years ago.
Hutcheon claims the meteorite gives his wine a “livelier taste”, while also providing “everybody the opportunity to touch something from space”. So far he has produced 2,200 gallons of the wine at his vineyard.”
