When wine started flowing through the taps in a small Italian village it was hailed as a miracle because it coincided with Marino Grape Festival. During the festival the sparkling wine flows from the main fountain in the square, however on this occasion it came through local peoples taps. It turned out, however, that there was no miracle, the situation was down to a technical error with a plumbing problem at the local vineyard. An error had switched the pipes from the local vineyard into the domestic water supply rather than to the intended destination of the fountain. As word spread the local people filled buckets and plastic containers with as much wine as they could. Wine on tap, this sounds great.
