Much like a public water fountain, the world’s first wine fountain has made its home in central Italy, according to the Local. Dispensing locally produced red wine, the fountain is available around the clock to everyone, free of charge. Saluti!

Located in Abruzzo, the fountain was installed along the Cammino di San Tammaso — a popular pilgrimage route — this past Sunday and is appropriately housed in an oversize wooden barrel. The Local reports that the wine fountain came to fruition as a partnership between Dora Sarchese Vineyard and a nonprofit organization that maintains the pilgrimage route. There’s no word on whether or not the fountain will be monitored for consumption by minors.

Spain has its very own pilgrimage wine fountain that was installed a few years ago. However, the fountain only operates from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., so if you happen to be on the route to Santiago, make sure you get there before last call.
