Praise be to the heathen gods and also the Catholic God, because apparently he approves: Italy just invented a wine fountain.
Dora Sarchese Winery outside of Ortona, Italy has made the pursuit of the perfect wine buzz a legitimate pilgrimage. Last week, the winery unveiled its crowning jewel, a sink-like fountain that spills forth their own sweet red–for free, 24/7.
The fountain was created as a congregation point for religious pilgrims making the 310-mile trek from St. Pete’s Basilica in Rome to Ortona, the home of St. Thomas’s remains.
They’re truly doing God’s work. Seriously, the thing was even blessed by a priest.
Since the debut of the fountain last week, thousands have already come through to taste the fermented fruits of their genius–which isn’t simply a vino-dispenser but also a veritable work of art, designed by famous Italian architect Rocco Valentini.
So whether you really love Jesus or just really love wine (or both), “La Fontana Del Vino” has got your back–and your refill. HEY-O.
There’s only one rule: no taking the wine on the go. Pilgrim or not, the wine doesn’t leave the premises unless it’s in your bloodstream.
I don’t know about you, but this little pilgrim is *parched.* How about another round on God?
