Talk about painting the city red.

The boozy river of wine flowed down a steep hill in Sao Lourenco do Bairro, near the coast of Portugal, after two tanks at the Livira distillery gave way on Sunday.

It was enough wine to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool and sparked an environmental warning as authorities tried to prevent the wine from contaminating the nearby Certima River.

The Anadian Fire Department reportedly blocked the floodwaters and diverted them away from the river and into a field.

Firefighters said a basement in a home near the distillery was flooded with wine.

Levira apologized and said it later dredged the wine-soaked land.

“We accept full responsibility for the costs associated with cleaning and repairing the damage and have teams in place to do this immediately. “We are committed to resolving this situation as quickly as possible,” the distillery said.
