A vineyard in Italy installed a free, 24-hour wine fountain



This is not a drill. We repeat. This is NOT. A DRILL. 

A vineyard in the Abruzzo region of Italy, east of Rome, installed a wine fountain that pumps local red wine 24 hours a day.

The Dora Sarchese vineyard erected the fountain along the Cammino di San Tommaso, a pilgrimage route that connects Rome to Ortona. 

The best part? It's entirely free. Anyone passing by can drink as much as they want. 

The vineyard is happy to welcome visitors, but is asking people not to over-indulge. 

Of course, many on Twitter are understandably excited by the announcement. 

Predictably, many on Twitter are making travel plans. 

It is important to note this is not the world's first wine fountain. There is a similar apparatus along the Camino de Santiago in Spain. However, this rival fountain is not open 24 hours a day.
