A tank storing 2.2 million litres of red wine ruptured at a distillery in the Portuguese town of So Lourenço do Bairro.
According to the New York Post, the wine ran through the town's streets, producing a river of red wine.
The unfortunate incident happened at the Destilaria Levira, which is located in the centre of the country.
The wine spilt may have filled an Olympic-sized swimming pool due to the severity of the leak. The wine can damage the soil and water, which is a huge environmental concern.

The two tanks were carrying wine to full capacity. The flow of the wine through the streets caused some flooding and damage.
Rescue and security officials in the town quickly acted to stop the wine from entering the Certima River and polluting it.
According to the New York Post, the Anadia Fire Department diverted the course of the flowing wine away from the river into a nearby field.
The actual cause of the spillage is yet to be identified, but it is suspected that the tanks had become faulty. Investigation is underway as the distillery remains closed.
Destilaria Levira sent out an apology for the incident. The company promised to pay for all damages caused and cleanup.
