On Wednesday, a blending take door popped open and spilled nearly 100-thousand gallons of wine.
This incident took place at Rodney Strong Vineyards in Sonoma County.
While the spill has been stopped, an estimated 96-thousand gallons or less leaked into the Russian River.
While no deaths for fish have been reported, the wine and its acidity could kill insects that the fish use as food.
The winery at fault has been cooperating with investigators, and the exact cause of spill has yet to be determined.

On Thursday, Caltrans has announced a new operation that can make your travels to Los Angeles easier in times of inclement weather.
Dubbed, “Operation Snowflake”, it is a plan that is activated when weather forecasters call for heavy snow at elevations of 4,500 feet or lower.
Maintenance crews work around-the-clock in order to keep Interstate 5 open through the Grapevine.
In the event of a freeway closure, Caltrans added a new median gate that is opened in order to turn travelers around prior to Tejon pass in an easier fashion.
If I-5 were to ever shut down for Operation Snowflake, travelers are typically advised to seek Highways 14 and 58 as an alternate route.
