Footage has been released showing a massive container of Prosecco filled to the brim, overflowing and spraying everywhere. And, to be honest, I wish I’d been there to experience it.
Not only did the escaping white wine spew like a huge alcohol fountain, but it also happened to do so in Conegliano, in the Italian province of Trevino. So, if you happened to be on holiday in sunny Italy at the time, the cost of your flights would’ve been completely worth it. Well, if you could’ve caught some in a glass before it hit the floor.
The tank itself contained roughly 30,000 litres of Prosecco which is probably why the escaping liquid was shooting metres in the air at certain points.
Fact: Prosecco has a ‘controlled designation of origin’. Which for those of you that don’t know, means it can only be called ‘Prosecco’ if it’s been produced in specific areas of Italy.
The incident itself was shared on Facebook by L’enoteca Zanardo Giussano and people are certainly enjoying what they see (over a million views so far).
It isn’t made known what the actual cause of the spectacular champagne shower is. It almost looks as if someone’s gone along and shaken the entire tank, although it’s unlikely because the amount of liquid in there would mean you’d need to be the hulk to do so.
One thing’s for sure though, regardless of what the cause was, that’s the complete opposite to what the owners want to be seeing.
Just think of how much money they’re watching literally slip through their fingers and flow passed their ankles.
But, don’t fret. The wine’s producers have revealed that summer this year was particularly fruitful (no pun intended) and the harvest was far better than originally thought. So it sounds as if they’ve got plenty of sweet nectar in reserve.
Well, they definitely have because their expected output this year is something close to 600 million bottles. With at least half of those heading straight for my house…
