Today’s Holiday:Marino Wine Festival

Today’s Holiday:
Marino Wine Festival

The Italian town of Marino is located in the area southeast of Rome known as the Castelli Romani, after the numerous castles, palaces, and Renaissance villas that dot the landscape. Marino is known as a wine town, and 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.:
