There's a new contender for the title of Best Fountain in Italy. 

It's located in the town of Ortona in the Abruzzo region, and it will dispense free wine 24 hours a day, seven days a week. 

Dora Sarchese is the name of the generous winery that has set up this marvel—a stone basin situated under button-operated taps housed in a giant wine barrel. It's situated along the Cammino di San Tommaso, a pilgrimage route dedicated to Saint Thomas, Jesus's famously doubting apostle.

The fountain is intended primarily as refreshment for pilgrims, but anyone can drink from it. The vino that will flow from the taps is red—Abruzzo's specialty—but the type of grape hasn't been announced yet. 

Though everyone is welcome to partake, the winery warned in a Facebook post that the fountain is "not a place for drunks."
