  1. Chilean wines absent

    I found very interesting this article and just missed the absent of Chilean wines in the study. Chile is 9th in the list of World Wine producers and 5th in the wine exporting countries. On the other side, Chile is also atractive for this study because of its geographical situation and heavy metal production (first world cooper producer). I consider that in future studies to determine the influence of soil type and geographical regions chilean wines should be consider.
