Inside Dora Sarchese winery there is a fountain from which free wine comes out everyday, a special place with a special story. The idea a Wine Fountain here in Abruzzo was born from the intuition of Dina and Luigi, two passionate walkers from Ortona who, during their pilgrimage to the tomb of Santiago de Compostela, met a wine fountain available for all the tired pilgrims.
That experience gave to Dina and Luigi the intention of realizing the same thing on the path that they had helped to give birth, il Cammino di San Tommaso, a long path between Rome and Ortona, linking the tombs of the Apostles Peter and Thomas.
Just on the path of San Tommaso, a few kilometers from Ortona, we find our winery, the right place to realize our fountain of wine, where pilgrims from all over the world could be refreshed by the fatigues of the long Trip.
This beautiful intuition became a reality by the collaboration of many people: our Nicola D’Auria and the whole family of Cantina Dora Sarchese, the members of the association the Cammino di San Tommaso and the architect Rocco Valentini who realized the project of the fountain.
The wine fountain is open to all pilgrims during the same opening hours of the Dora Sarchese Winery.
