Several streets in the southern French port-town of Sete nearly drowned in wine overnight after the contents of five enormous tanks of the liquid were spilled onto the streets by unidentified assailants.

The criminally wasted wine was spilled onto Marechal-Juin avenue, flooding several adjoining streets as well. When the fragrant fluid reached nearby underground cellars and parking lots, locals called the firefighters, reported by the local Midi Libre newspaper.

It took them at least half an hour to pump out all the liquid and clear the streets. The National Police was called in to investigate.

Up to 50,000 liters of the tipple were wasted, reports say. The tanks belonged to the Biron S.A. wholesale wine trading house.

Dionysus is furious! Rivers of Wine, what a sight.



50,000 Litres, wow. I wonder what happened there, the expense, unparalleled.


In April they hijacked five tankers of Spanish wine on the border and emptied the equivalent of 90,000 bottles of the fluid in protest against what they consider unfair competition.

Well that entire tirade was irrelevant and unnecessary.

Whoever did this, may have had a religious motivation. I do believe Muslims look down upon alcohol in the Good book anyway. Could it have been some mischievous Muslim teenagers kind of sticking it to their parents about the alcohol thing?

"Ok, we not allowed to drink, then neither shall the swine" is the thought that may have lead to this.

Excellent, Thankyou for that much appreciated!

The clean up won't be fun, i wonder who will be held responsible.

I agree though it was most likely the only thing left 'to' do, the French deserve their Wine they're famous for it, not this cheap rubbish.

IMO cheap french wine is the worst, but to each their own.
