Imagine getting home after a tough day at work to find wine flowing from your tap. Um, sign me up!

Last week, this exact thing happened in the northern Italian town of Castelvetrofaucets. After being hit hard by the coronavirus epidemic, the region needed a reason to smile.

On Wednesday, a malfunctioning valve at a local winery caused over 1 000 litres of Lambrusco wine to leak into the water system. It affected about 20 homes and lasted for about 3 hours before the 'problem' was fixed.

According to CNN, the local government posted on its Facebook page that the leak didn't pose any health risk. Of course not! A glass of red a day has been proven over and over to have great heart health benefits. 

Can this happen in SA please?
