Fontana del Vino, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo DOP 2019 - Dora Sarchese
Inside the Dora Sarchese winery there is a fountain from which wine gushes, a special place with a special history. The idea of creating a wine fountain in Abruzzo comes from the intuition of Dina and Luigi, two passionate walkers from Ortona who during their pilgrimage to the tomb of Santiago de Compostela happily came across a wine fountain available to many pilgrims in need of refreshment. This experience gave birth to Dina and Luigi the dream of realizing the same thing on the path that they themselves had helped to create, the Way of St. Thomas, a long path between Rome and Ortona, connection between the tombs of the apostles Peter and Thomas. Right on the route of the Camino di San Tommaso, a few kilometers from Ortona, our Cellar is the right place to build our wine fountain, where pilgrims from all over the world could have relieved themselves from the fatigue of the long journey.
