The convenience of public water fountains can't be denied. They come in very handy on extremely hot days. It's a concept that you think couldn't be improved on — until you see the free public wine fountains in Italy. This is really a cool ass idea.
This glorious gift comes not from the Gods, but from the Dora Sarchese Vineyard and a non-profit organization called The Way of St. Thomas.
The fountain is located in Ortona, Italy, at the end of "Cammino di San Tommaso" a pilgrimage trail. Dedicated Catholics walk a 194-mile path to honor St. Thomas the Apostle, one of Jesus' disciples, whose relics remain in Ortona. As a reward for completing the pilgrimage, the non-profit erected a fountain to celebrate the way Jesus would want us to — by turning water into wine.
The fountain is found inside a giant "wine cask" at the vineyard. It can be accessed by anyone, even if you didn't do the trek from Rome to Ortona.
