2.2m litres of wine floods village in Anadia

Road becomes a river of red wine

From the mainland, the Portugal News reports that a river of 2.2 million litres of DOC red wine suitable for consumption flooded the streets of São Lourenço do Bairro, north of Coimbra in Anadia last weekend.

According to Diário de Coimbra, Sunday morning saw red wine cascade 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 distillery, 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”.

A new, vastly improved “search” facility has been introduced allowing readers to search (box in the sidebar above) on any word or phrase used in any of the posts over the last sixteen years. Previously the search facility only returned matches on headings rather than the entire content. It remains to be seen whether this will slow the blog down – fingers crossed! If it works it should move the blog even further ahead of the increasing number of imitators, providing a huge resource for visitors and residents.
