In the Cepa 21 winery, an intruder opens wine tanks and destroys 60,000 liters of wine.

The motive and identity of the perpetrator are not yet known.

Castrillo de Duero – Making wine is not a cheap endeavor.

It requires a few hectares of land in a good location to grow the grapes.

Machines and harvest helpers for the harvest and then the right equipment for fermentation.

Added to this are the costs for bottling and marketing.

However, this calculation only works if the wine produced is then sold.

The Cepa 21 winery was partially deprived of this opportunity.

A previously unknown person got into the room where the wines are stored in large tanks.

She opened five of these tanks and let the precious contents spill out.

As a result, the winery lost a significant portion of the wine produced that year.

The damage caused amounts to a total of 2.5 million euros.
