The fountain of wine

The first fountain in Italy that wine constantly flows from is in Caldari di Ortona, along the Way of St. Thomas.

Inaugurated on October 9, 2016, the fountain of wine, which is located in Caldari di Ortona, is the first in Italy. We find others in Marino (Rome), in Carosino (Taranto) and San Floriano di Collio (Gorizia), but they are only opened for special events or festivities, while wine flows continuously from the Abruzzo fountain.

It lies along the Way of St. Thomas, a spiritual path that goes from Rome to Ortona where the remains of the Apostle Thomas are preserved inside the cathedral.

The Way is promoted and supported by a non-profit organization, and two of the founders of the Way, Dina Cespa and Luigi Narcisi, had the idea of the fountain on the example of one in Botegas Irache that welcomes travellers to Estella, Navarra. The project immediately received the support of Nicola D'Auria who owns, directly along the Way of St. Thomas, the Cantina Dora Sarchese, among the most famous of Abruzzo. The groupImage was then joined by the architect Rocco Valentini who oversaw the construction, and the project took off.

The fountain is inside a large barrel, big enough to hold a person, a charming and curious choice, and on the interior walls there is an inscription dedicated to those who arrive there: 'Drink the wine, it does not know whence you came, be happy because you know where you're going '

The choice of the opening day, October 9, was not random because it coincided with the conclusion of the harvest and pressing of the historical Montepulciano Nitae, which is the culminating phase of winemaking.

From that day, therefore, those who are going from Caldari on the Way of St. Thomas, or are discovering Abruzzo, can quench their thirst at the fountain from which this excellent red wine flows.
