Take 2: If you're a self-proclaimed wino…

Italy's brand-new 24-hour wine fountain is calling your name. Located in the small town of Caldari di Ortona, the fountain was designed by architect Rocco Valentini and is completely free of charge. Grab your wineglass and flock to the wine mecca.

Take 3: If you can't get enough of pumpkin spice everything…

Take 5: If you still have no idea what to be for Halloween…
