A Free 24-Hour Wine Fountain Just Opened In Italy

Wine-lovers everywhere, pick your jaw up from off the floor. Yes, you read that headline correctly. A vineyard in Italy just became the first place in the world to install a 24-hour fountain serving wine instead of water – and it won’t cost you a euro.

The new instalment at Dora Sarchese winery in the town of Caldari di Ortona was designed by architect Rocco Valentini, and sees red wine poured from the font instead of the usual water. Guests can fill a glass or even fill a bottle at the fountain, which hopes to bring together like-minded wine connoisseurs.

Situated on the popular Cammino di San Tommaso pilgrimage route, it will also sate the thirst of those making the arduous trek of Saint Thomas.

But stag dos should stay away – the vineyard is actively discouraging any drunken and disorderly behaviour, thank you very much…

So, what’s the nearest airport to Dora Sarchese?
