A Free All-You-Can-Drink Wine Fountain Just Opened in Italy

Italy is known for its wine. It is also known for its spectacular fountains; some bring you luck, others bring you love. However, these two great Italian forces have never been combined. Until now. You’re going to want to take a trip to Dora Sarchese.

In Abruzzo, at the local Dora Sarchese vineyard, a 24-hour wine fountain has just opened. Although it looks like a water fountain, this fountain spouts red wine instead of water. And the best part is, it’s free.

For those of you who love taking leisurely wine tours through small vineyards, this wine plantation in the heart of Italy just became your new destination. So set yourself a price alert on flights to Italy. You won’t want to miss this tourist destination of your dreams.

Nestled into the small town of Caldari di Ortona you can find this unparalleled architectural wonder. This so-called fontana di vino is located in the Dora Sarchese vineyard along the famous Cammino di San Tommaso pilgrimage route.

The fountain is indeed a permanent installation.

No, this is not a publicity stunt. This fountain is a joint project between architect Rocco Valentini, and the non-profit organization that protects the Cammino di San Tommaso pilgrimage route. 

The vineyard announced at the fountain’s grand opening in October that it hopes the fountain will become a “meeting place for pilgrims and wine lovers.” They have already warned, however, that this is not a place for “drunkards” or “louts.” Plus, there is one other caveat.

A spokesperson for the vineyard told Mashable that the wine fountain’s elixir is not to takeaway. If you want to enjoy the wine, you’ll have to stay put.
