According to Diário de Coimbra, yesterday morning (10 September), red wine cascaded down Rua de Cima after two tanks burst at the Destilaria Levira.
The red wine poured down the street without causing any injuries and led to the flooding of the road and of at least one cellar as the paper reports.
According to the company, the liquid that was able to be collected was taken to a treatment plant.
The company “deeply regrets the incident”, but residents have protested against what the company considers an “incident”, the causes of which “are being investigated by the competent authorities”.
