A FREE 24-HOUR WINE FOUNTAIN JUST OPENED IN ITALY

21 Oct 2016 By

The Italians just took la dolce vita to the next level with their free wine fountain.

One Italian town just gave new meaning to la dolce vita with the introduction of a free, 24-hour wine fountain.

The fountain (and its consistent flow of red wine) has appeared in Caldari di Ortona, in the Abruzzo region, just outside of Rome, Condé Nast Traveler reports. The location of the free wine is along the Cammino di San Tommaso, a route that thousands of pilgrims and tourists take from Rome to Ortona, where they visit the city’s cathedral and the remains of Thomas, one of Jesus’s disciples, The Local reports

The fontana del vino was installed by angels living among us, or the folks from the Dora Sarchese vineyard. The winemakers were inspired by a similar fountain along the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in Spain and teamed up with the nonprofit that maintains the Cammino di San Tommaso to bring their locally produced wine to anyone who desires it.

A post on their Facebook page reads, “Fountain of Wine is a welcome, the Fountain of Wine is poetry.” However, they also add that it is not to be used for “drunkards” or “louts.”

Needless to say, we’ll be booking our plane ticket.
