Water Taps Pour Wine In Italian Village Due To Local Winery Error

You would definitely be forgiven if you thought Jesus Christ had returned (to a little village in the Modena, Italy that is) because recently some people were blessed to find red wine coming out of their water taps.

Of course, with all the craziness going on in the world today, something like this wouldn’t come as a surprise to many.

But the idea of having a continuous supply of sweet red wine flowing at home could even make us comfortable with the idea of isolating ourselves for some time until the coronavirus outbreak is brought under control.

Sadly, it was a short-lived wonder and there was a completely logical excuse for the situation.

According to reports, a local winery mistakenly pumped a large amount of red wine into the water system which resulted in sweet wine spewing out of the taps.

It affected the residents of the Castelvetro area and happened due to a human error at the Setticani winery.

Once people found out, the water board swiftly sent technicians to stop wine flow, and as one can imagine, this came to the disappointment of many.

Nevertheless many took advantage of the situation and bottled up as much of the precious liquid as they could for later days. 

Eventually, the local council apologized to the people affected on their Facebook page due to some complaints over potential water quality and safety concerns.

As per reports, the fizzy red wine in question is called Lambrusco Graparossa di Castelvetro and is quite popular among Italians.

Salute!
