This massive spill – a man-made disaster – temporarily made the town’s streets impassable for its 2,500 residents. Local authorities acted swiftly to divert the wine and prevent it from contaminating the nearby Certima River. Volunteer firefighters successfully managed to drain the wine and transport it to a wastewater treatment plant, and fortunately, no residents were harmed or inebriated during this unusual incident.
