our packing guide for the san vino wine fight

Our sexiest and wettest festival is right around the corner. We’ll be taking wet t-shirt contests to the extreme as we battle it out on the hillside of La Rioja with our favorite weapon of all time: vino tinto. The San Vino Wine Fight is the battle of all battles and it’s one that you don’t want to miss. If you haven’t joined in on the soaking wet madness before and you don’t know what to bring, don’t get your panties in a bunch, we’re here to help you out. We like to consider ourselves experts when it comes to throwing, drinking, and becoming one with the wine.

Squirt guns

They come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors and they make for the most efficient battle weapon in the game. Sure, throwing wine is fun, but have you ever tried squirting your mates with wine out of a squirt gun before? We’re going to assume you haven’t, and that’s okay. Opportunity is right around the corner for you and it’s just as fun as you would think… probably even more satisfying than you would think.

Bathing suit

Like we said, it’s basically a giant wet tshirt contest, but everything from your hair to your socks will be soaking up the tasteful wine. You’ll be dripping wet within five minutes, and honestly clothes just really get in the way sometimes. So what better way to fight then in your favorite swim gear? Strip down and feel free as you blast your mates. Plus, back at our campsite we have an onsite pool for everyone to kick it and rid themselves of the wine.

Goggles

Why not fucken come as prepared as possible, right? Goggles pave the way for your eyesight. And you’ll have crystal clear vision from start to finish, which always makes for a better fight. Out there, it’s every person for themselves and you can bet that by the end of the day, you’ll be a winner.

Disclaimer, there really is no winner. We do this as an excuse to day drink and throw wine at each other all in the name of good fucken times.

Obviously a white shirt

The way we dress is pretty similar to the Running of the Bulls… you’re going to be wearing a white shirt and a red scarf. Pretty simple and almost impossible to fuck up. But, it’s one of those things that need to be said. We wouldn’t want our friends to feel left out because they decided to wear something that couldn’t be stained purple.

Shoes you don’t mind ruining

When we say wine fight, we really do mean we’ll be fighting with wine. You’ll be running and dodging and dancing for hours, all while having gallons of the beloved vino soaking up every inch of your body. So be smart about the shoes you wear. Something comfy and something you don’t mind ruining.

 

If throwing things at strangers and your mates is something you fancy, be sure to also give La Tomatina a go. It’s the same as San Vino… but we sub out the vino tinto with some red fiery balls, also known as tomatoes.
