Imagine: You look out your window momentarily and suddenly see a river of red wine flowing through your street. You can hardly imagine it, but this was the reality for the residents of the town of São Lorenco de Bairro last Sunday.
RESIDENTS IN SHOCK
Unfortunately, what seems like a dream for every wine lover turned out to be a disaster for the people of the small town. Locals were stunned as thousands of litres of red wine flowed down the street. All kinds of videos circulating on social media show the ‘miracle’.
According to the New York Post, the amount of wine could have filled an Olympic swimming pool. The town was, therefore, on the brink of an environmental disaster. The cause is said to be the leakage of two tanks from the wine company, Levira Distillery. It still needs to be made clear how this leak occurred. Authorities arrived just in time to limit the impact as much as possible.
