RED WINE flows through Portuguese village after two trucks accidentally spilled 2.2 million litres down a street


A small Portuguese town of São Lourenco do Bairro was painted red after two of its trucks accidentally spilled 2.2 million litres of red wine down a street.

The spill

The red wine flowed down a steep hill in the small town, near the coast of Portugal, after two tanks owned by Levira Distillery suddenly gave way on Sunday, September 10.

Firefighters said that a basement in a home near the distillery was flooded with wine.

Levira has since apologised, and said it later dredged the wine-soaked land.

‘We assume full responsibility for the costs associated with cleaning and repairing the damage, having teams available to do so immediately.

‘We are committed to resolving this situation as quickly as possible.’

While the river of wine could have caused an environmental disaster, experts have said drinking a wide variety of red wine is good for your gut.

Tim Spector, professor of genetic epidemiology at King’s College London, said drinking a wide variety of wines can have the same benefit as having a varied diet.

‘My advice for wine lovers is to continue to love wine and continue to drink wine, mainly for pleasure, but in the back of your mind think: could I try other bottles or varieties that might be healthier for me and that I might enjoy? enjoy?’
