A Spanish winery was flooded with almost 50,000-litres of red wine after a malfunction and a video of the incident is doing the rounds of the internet.
The incident took place at the Bodegas Vitivinos winery in Vallamalea in Central Spain, said a news.com.au report.
Footage of the incident shows red wine gushing out of the massive tanks and covering most of the winery’s premises.
A local report quoted the president of the winery as saying that the incident was probably caused by a leak in the tank valves.

Founded in 1969, the Bodegas winery is located in the south-eastern part of Iberian Peninsula with an area of 1,570 hectares.
The red wine flowing out of the tanks prompted comparisons on social media with an iconic scene from the Hollywood movie ‘The Shining’
