A fountain that dispenses wine is not just a pipe dream – it’s a reality in the Italian village of Caldary di Ortona, where visitors can drink red wine 24 hours a day for free. The wine fountain was launched by a local winery and a nonprofit organization, reports the Local.
The wine fountain has become a popular destination for people traveling from across Italy and the world to sample the locally made wines. It’s not unusual to see a queue of more than 200 pilgrims waiting to drink from the wine fountain, which was built in 2016 and is sheltered by a rustic wooden hut.
While there are several fountains that dispense wine around the world, the Italian wine fountain is unique in that it’s free to the public. Pilgrims and tourists can fill up on wine at the wine fountain, which dispenses white and red wines in bottles of all sizes.
Those who wish to recreate the magic of the Italian wine fountain at home can do so by purchasing a DIY kit and following simple instructions. The kits are available online and in many home improvement stores. They come with a water pump, tubing and glass wine bottle that’s ready to be assembled. The DIY wine bottle fountain is an environmentally friendly project that transforms discarded wine bottles into a decorative outdoor water fountain.
