Almost 60,000 liters of premium red wine worth around 2.5 million euros was lost at a Spanish winery after an unknown man broke in and opened the vats.

Barron's writes about it.

Surveillance footage released by the well-known Cepa 21 winery in the Ribera del Duero region shows a man in a hooded sweatshirt running from one large vat to another and opening taps, causing wine to spill onto the floor.

The incident happened around 3:30 a.m. on February 18.

The amount of high-quality wine lost could fill 80,000 bottles.

The head of the establishment, Jose Moro, told Spanish public broadcaster TVE that the attacker's only aim was to damage the business, as no items were stolen during the break-in.

He also said the attacker would have had to know how to operate the system to open the vats.

"Everything indicates that the person knew where he was," he added.

The winery filed a complaint with the police, which began an investigation.

It will be recalled that

a homeless man stole a private plane

to prove his point of view.

He explained what his message was.
