Wine {candisc}R Documentation

Chemical composition of three cultivars of wine

Description

These data are the results of a chemical analysis of wines grown in the same region in Italy but derived from three different cultivars. The analysis determined the quantities of 13 constituents found in each of the three types of wines.

This data set is a classic in the machine learning literature as an easy high-D classification problem, but is also of interest for examples of MANOVA and discriminant analysis.
