CASTELVETRO, Italy (WNCN/CNN NEWSOURCE) — No one likes plumbing issues. But perhaps this is one many people might not mind.
Red wine flowed from faucets for a few hours last week in the northern Italian town of Castelvetro.
A malfunction at a local winery sent one thousand liters of ready-to-be-bottled wine through the water pipes of about 20 homes.
The wine flowed from faucets and shower heads for a few hours.
Local government officials said there was no health risk to residents.
The town’s deputy mayor admitted the glitch was a moment of levity for Italians dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.
The health crisis has hit residents of northern Italy especially hard.
