Marino wine festival..close to Rome Aug 25, 2011
The Italian town of Marino is located in the area southeast of Rome known as the Castelli Romani, it takes only 30 minutes by train from Roma termini main station.Marino is known as a wine town, and there are about a hundred cantine —small, nondescript taverns where tourists and residents can buy the local wine, which is often siphoned from a large vat and poured into an empty mineral water bottle, for a very low price. It's not surprising, then, that during the town's wine festival in early October the new grape harvest is celebrated by letting the previous year's wine gush freely from the Moors Fountain. Crowds of Romans eager to escape the city descend upon Marino with jugs, bottles, and thermoses to fill. The wine is free for the taking and is the perfect accompaniment to a porchetta sandwich, the filling made by slowly roasting pig over a woodfire with fresh garlic, rosemary, and olive oil.

Please remember that getting " free wine " doesn't mean getting drunk and be UNPOLITE with locals and the city... be good!
