If this isn’t the most vital invention of the modern era, we don’t know what is.

Wine lovers and bargain hunters, brace yourselves for the best news of your life.

There is an actual free wine fountain in Italy.

Yep. Free. Wine. Satisfying the mouths and staining the shirts of thirsty folk from across the world.

The fountain is in Italy’s Abruzzo region, along the stunning Cammino di San Tommaso hike. A local vineyard, Dora Sarchese, is responsible for this selfless gift to humanity, and will supply the bubbler with their glorious red vino.

However, the vineyard has warned the fountain is not for “drunkards” or “louts”, The Local reports. “The wine fountain is a welcome. The wine fountain is poetry,” Dora Sarchese wrote on its Facebook page.

The pilgrimage on which the wine fountain sits runs from Rome to Ortona, and is about 225km long.

The wine fountain was inspired by a similar fountain along Spain’s famous Camino de Santiago.

While there’s no reports on what grape will be on tap, we do know the faucet will flow freely 24/7!

So, if you need us you know where we’ll be!
