Water Into Wine, Italian Style

default-image

You have to love this story that appeared on Decanter's website today. Seems that the town of Marino, south of Rome, typically celebrates harvest by running a line from the local winery to a 17th century fountain in the center of town, then pumping 3,000 liters of wine through it. This year, the plumbers in charge of the job managed to connect the wine supply to Marino's regular water system instead...mirabile dictu, hot and cold running Frascati. Sounds like my kind of town.
