Chile's wine industry hit hard by earthquake

The earthquake caused substantial damage in Chile's wine region: Stainless steel fermentation tanks tipped over, wine bottles busted and wineries without power. While it's still too early to tell the full extent of the damage, early reports indicate that the damage to one of the nation's major industries will be far-reaching. Chile in 2009 exported more than 670 million liters of wine, valued at $1.36 billion.
