Malfunction sends red wine flowing through water pipes of Italian town


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.
