The Italian region of Abruzzo boasts a brand new fountain – but this one has a twist, rather than offer water it flows with wine. This unique fountain in Italy offers red wine and can be visited by locals and tourists alike, every day of the week, at any time of day. Central Italy’s Eastern shoreline of the Adriatic sea is one of Italy’s most beautiful and soil-rich regions. The locally produced montepulciano d'Abruzzo is made from the indigenous montepulciano grape.

The fountain exists thanks to a partnership with the non-profit that runs the Cammino di San Tommaso — a 140-mile pilgrimage from Rome to Ortona. What sets Abruzzo’s wine fountain apart from similar installations across the continent is that it will be operational 24/7 and access to it will be absolutely free of charge. If you’re a wine connoisseur and are wondering what your next destination should be, don’t hesitate – Abruzzo is definitely worth the trip.
