HARO, LA RIOJA
La Rioja is the número uno wine making district of Spain, it has over 500 wineries and is only a short distance from Bilbao. If you’ve been lucky enough to find a bottle of La Rioja in your hands you’ll know what we’re talking about! La Batalla del Vino 2018 takes place on a hillside vineyard just outside the village of Haro, a walk up the hill from our campsite.
If you choose to combine San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018 with a stay at our infamous Surf Camp in San Sebastian, then it’s just a 2.5 hour coach trip fuelled mostly by wine drinking and singing. If you’re combining the trip with a Barcelona stay, then the journey is a little longer but that just means even more wine drinking and singing.
Avenida de Miranda 1
HOW TO GET THERE
Take the Stoke bus from Barcelona the 27th or the day trip bus on the 29th. Meet us at the Plaza Cataluyna outside the Hard Rock Cafe for check in 1 hour before your bus departs.
Enter all of your questions and queries in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll come up with smart ass answers here…
Will I drown?
If you accidentally trip and fall in a deep puddle of wine the only other option apart from drowning is to drink your way to survival.
What should I bring?
Sunglasses and sunscreen as it gets pretty hot, a pillow and torch for your tent, goggles, condoms, a waterproof camera, swimmers to have a dip in the pool afterwards, old shoes that can be thrown out after the madness, and shampoo if you don’t want your hair stained red for the next month. Oh and don’t forget a towel.
Are there hot showers to wash off my wine-stained body parts?
Sí, there are showers at the campsite and we highly encourage a rinse off at the end of the day, before you climb in your tent and turn everything you touch purple. You’ll also smell like vinegar at this point which greatly decreases your chance of having someone join you in said purple tent.
What do I wear? Do I need goggles?
We sell white clothing so your fave tee doesn’t turn permanently purple and goggles are also available for those who want to be able to see for the rest of their lives, but sunnies can do the job.
How do we get to and from the fight?
Stoke drives a shuttle with guides to and from the wine fight, if missed there are free shuttles as part of the festival that depart from nearby the campsite. It’s a short, 5 minute walk to town and the street parties.
Do you sell white clothes?
To avoid ruining your favourite white tee, we sell white Stoke Merch for a very affordable price.
2 of us are vegans, do you cater for this?
We always cater for vegetarians, so we can always just remove the animal-products and stuff you to the brim with fruits and veggies and starches…..whatever we do, we’ll make a plan for you.
