Turning water into wine

It has to be a drinkers dream, free alcohol on tap, but it’s come true in the island of La Palma. In Fuencaliente they now have a fountain that spurts out free wine, please form an orderly queue.

The free flowing fountain is in the San Antonio plaza, near the church, and is a tribute to the islands wine making tradition. One if the big local wine producers has it’s headquarters nearby and donated 3,000 litres of fine wine. Before you rush over with a bucket, the fountain will only pour plonk at special times of celebration.

It may be a little early for christmas but, for what it’s worth, top of my list this year is a Dorada beer fountain.
