Oh the humanity!

A fermentation tank at an Italian winery has exploded, spilling about 30,000 litres of Prosecco… the horror!

That’s about 400,000 bottles worth of sparkling wine.

The video went viral, with some people offering to help clean-up by bringing along some glasses and straws.

The video gathered more than 1 million views on Facebook and prosecco lovers worldwide mourned the loss.

“This prosecco silos expolded [sic]. And its spilling prosecco everywhere. Shall we go there asap?,” one sparkling wine fan wrote.

“We need to pack up the rubber dingys and long straws and find this place,” said another.

“I’d be stood underneath with my mouth open and a bucket to catch it and take it home,” one commenter said.
