Plumbing mishap turns water into wine

Water into wine - a miracle? Nope, a plumping mishap by bungling Italian
authorities.

The Marino Grape Festival normally features a fountain in the square
where free wine flows. But at this year's festival sparkling chilled white
wine started flowing through the reisdent's own taps.

The free wine was hailed as a "Miracolo" by people in the town south of
Rome.

They said housewives doing the washing up or running a bath suddenly
noticed a strange smell of alcohol.

Adriano Palozzi, the embarrassed mayor of Marino, said that water
engineers had inadvertently misdirected the flow of wine into the domestic
supply.

The mistake was quickly spotted and reversed, but not before many
quick-thinking residents had filled buckets, jugs, and any containers that
came to hand.
