What if you saw red wine flowing from your faucet?

Red wine was flowing from the faucets of 20 homes in a town named Castelvetro in northern Italy.

They say a malfunction at a local winery sent 1,000 liters of ready to be bottled wine through the pipes.

The wine was flowing from faucets and shower heads for a few hours.

There was no health risk to residents, according to local government officials.

The town's Deputy Mayor said the glitch was a moment of levity for Italians dealing with the coronavirus outbreak.
