Free Wine Fountains of Europe

It’s a dream come true for any wine lover…a fountain dispensing free wine 24/7, open to the public. But you’re going to have to work for it.
You’ll find two such fountains in two of Europe’s major wine-producing countries: Spain and Italy. The Spanish fountain came first, in 1991. It was installed by monks at their monastery, an hour’s walk outside the town of Estella.
This is no party scene. It’s intended to slake the thirst—and perhaps relieve the aches and pains—of pilgrims making the long trek to Santiago de Compostela. 
A recently installed fountain in the region of Abruzzo, in central Italy, drew inspiration from the Spanish one. It’s along the Cammino di San Tommaso, which brings pilgrims from Rome to Ortona, where lie the remains of Thomas the Apostle.
Both fountains dispense red wine. And it’s said to be quite good!
