This is no work of divine beings, however. Apparently, local winery Cantina Settecani experienced a mishap with a faulty valve that caused 1,000 liters of ready-to-be-bottled wine to leak into the water pipes. It lasted for about three hours and affected around 20 homes in Castelvetro.
Luckily for the managers of Cantina Settecani, homeowners didn’t seem too bothered by the malfunction. In a CNN interview with the winery’s community manager, he claimed that their clients actually “appreciated” the mishap and bottled the free-flowing wine themselves! It also helped that their local government eased their worries by clarifying that the leak did not pose any health risks at all.
