Italian villagers must have thought Jesus Christ had arrived in town after they turned on their taps to find wine coming out instead of water.

In a bizarre incident, pink wine poured from the plumbing of residents' homes in a village near Bologna on March 4.

The marvellous mishap occurred after a technical fault at the nearby Settecani Winery.

A defective silo was leaking wine into the local water supply, which then found its way into homes, and naturally into people's tummies.

Some residents expressed concern after the event about the safety of their water supply.

But others were jumping for joy with the winery's generous accident.

According to the Gazetta di Modena, residents had "bottled as much of the precious liquid as they could to enjoy later at lunch or dinner along with other typical Modenese specialities".

The winery issued an apology on its Facebook page.
