Whilst on our recent trip around Portugal and Spain we stopped in little aire in a little place called Ayegui in Northern Spain. Bonny little spot with a monastery and wine museum across the road. We went for a little wander and stopped at the village water fountain. What a water fountain it was. It dispenses wine as well as water :banana: It dispenses 100 litres of FREE red wine per day!

Hi Helen, was there myself this year. Amazing isn't it? Even though it's in the middle of nowhere, if it was in the UK it would be totally abused I think.

If it were here folks would fix a hose pipe and put through the letterbox so have a drink while watching f/ball on telly.

100 litres?
Hmmm, what a coincidence...

My water tank holds just that volume....Hmmm!

Haven't seen a wine fountain, but saw a chocolate waterfall the other week.

We weren't allowed to drink from it though.

Just heard from horshamjack. He's there as we speak. Word gets around!
He got half a glass of wine when it ran out!
He's going back at 8am in the morning when they put on a new batch.
How's that for dedication?

Apart from the free wine, the wine in the bodega attached is very reasonably priced and we have just enjoyed a bottle of blue wine we purchased there. I have never seen blue wine before but it is very very nice. wish i'd got more now. looks like we will be going back.

Listening to a American pod cast about the Camino, the guy was amazed that beer and wine are cheaper than water to buy!

I remember during the early 1960s, after a drought in Spain, they were apologising for the strength of the wine, as there was a shortage of water to dilute the must during the fermentation.

Well, we had to!
It's on our way to Pamplona, where we are going & my family wouldn't believe there's such a thing as a free wine fountain.
Also for those who complain that we are depriving the poor pilgrims, don't worry.
We saw many walkers on the Camino who called in at the font but they were drinking the water.
I love a glass of wine but of doing an arduous trek as this, would stick with the water, red wine is a fast- track to dehydration.
With me it's a case of false economy as I've booked into the Aire & although it's only €4 for 3 days, it's the 1st time I've paid for an overnight stay in mainland Europe in over 4 years!

You could have parked on the monastery car park for free, but as you you are on the aire it looks like you have to pay for the services but if you look closely you will see they have put a cross through where you have to put a token so the water and services are free.

I did notice the cross through the coin slot, but they say services are included on the notice at the entrance.
I saw vans parking out side the sports centre for free, but what's the point?, 4 euros for 72hrs with all the services, even I can't grumble at that.
