Wine flows from faucet after malfunction

U.S. & World

CASTELVETRO, Italy (CNN) — No one likes plumbing issues, but perhaps this is one many people might not mind.  

The video above shows red wine flowing from a faucet.

It happened for a few hours Wednesday in the northern Italian town of Castelvetro.

A malfunction at a local winery sent 1,000 liters of ready-to-be-bottled wine through the water pipes of about 20 homes.

The wine flowed from faucets and showerheads 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.
