We like to avoid religion on our fun and friendly blog here at Virgin Wines, however the miracle of turning water into wine will soon be a reality for one Greek Town.
Residents of Naoussa in Greece will be greeted by the site of flowing wine in their central square as authorities are turning their famous fountain into one of the biggest wine decanters I’ve ever personally seen.
In an effort to get the locals in a mood to party and turn Naoussa into the ultimate Greek wine city, 32,000 litres of wine made from the Xinomavro grape will be poured into the fountain creating a visual spectacular that locals will remember.
The Xinomavro grape is an indigenous to the uplands of Naoussa in the regional unit of Imathia, the dry red wine variety is known throughout Greece but plays second fiddle to the jam brand Naoussa, that’s made from the peaches, apples, cherries and other fruits from local orchards.
Although we won’t get a chance to see the fountain in person, we’re confident it’s going to look spectacular.
