Happy hour. First questions asked is: when will last drinks be ordered? Is it 7pm or 8pm? And even if you’re happy during these hours, you still need to pay. A little less but still have to pay…
How about free drinks? And wine for that matter…are we on to something?
Why yes! Presenting free flow of wine (here) that you can drink off a fountain. Can you imagine that. All you need is a glass. Because its literally free flowing. Sponsored by a vineyard and a non-profit organization, the fountain WILL flow 24/7 according to its sponsors and managers…It’s main aim is to provide pilgrims following the Cammino di San Tommaso with a refreshing drink to quench their thirst. For those who don’t know, this is a route from Rome to Ortona spanning 140 miles to reach St Thomas’s resting place.
So technically if you are not on the pilgrimage, no happy hours for you. Imagine that, getting all spiritual…don’t pelt us!
Actually this is neither new nor unique since this idea was originally fermented and implemented in the hills of northern Spain. Heard of the Compostella pilgrimage anyone?
Will you get to Abruzzo just to enjoy a free flow of wine? Because Mel & Suan have not touched the boot and heel of Italy, why yes for us we’d sure like to go! The road trip was planned many years ago but could not be brought to fruition. Perhaps we now have a perfect excuse to make this drive to the southern tip of the peninsula and cross over to Sicily too!
