A river of wine flowed through a town in Portugal/documentation from social media, use under section 27A of the Copyright Law
A blood-red river suddenly began flowing through the small Portuguese town of São Lourenço do Bairro and shocked the residents. After a quick check, it turned out to be nothing less than a river of wine - formed after two trucks accidentally spilled 2.2 million liters of red wine on a quiet street.
The river of red wine flowed rapidly down a steep hill in the small town off the coast of Portugal after a sudden malfunction broke out in the two trucks owned by the local wine distillery Lavira. Confused locals watched as the wine, nearly enough to fill an Olympic-size swimming pool, drifted and washed over the town.
The spill was so massive that local authorities declared there was an environmental hazard and had to divert the flow of wine to prevent it from polluting the nearby Certima River. After much effort, the Anadia County Fire Department managed to block the flood and diverted the flow of wine away from the river, where it spilled into the field without causing any damage except for a cellar in a house adjacent to the distillery that was flooded with wine, local media reported.

The managers of the Lavira distillery issued an apology and announced that they would later dig up the wine-soaked soil. "We take full responsibility for the costs associated with cleaning and repairing the damage and our teams are available to do so immediately. We are committed to resolving this situation as quickly as possible."
