Bottoms Up! 8,000 Gallons of Bubbly Bursts From Foamy Wine Tank

By Jennings Brown on at

An Italian winery, L’enoteca Zanardo Giussano in Conegliano, Veneto, lost approximately 8,000 gallons of bubbly on 25 September, due to an overserved silo.

The winery posted a short video of the outburst on Facebook. I feel drunk just looking at this deluge of Prosecco flowing out of the giant tank.

The short clip shows a flood of light sparkling wine rushing out from the cascade. The video has been viewed more than a million times over the last week.

If any type of wine is going to suffer such a loss—it’s probably best it happened to Prosecco.
