Barcelona to San Vino 2017

Haro, La Rioja, Spain | 27th - 30th June

Ride with us from Barcelona to San Vino 2017

If you’ve clubbed yourself crazy in Barcelona, why not take a 2-day break and come to one of the most awesome (and crazy) cultural experiences of your life from Barcelona to San Vino 2017? We have buses to take you to the tiny town of Haro in the hills of La Rioja province. Here you will find a little cobblestoned, cozy village that for 2 days a year goes absolutely nuts.

Our friendly folk will meet you at Plaza Catalunya in front of Hard Rock Cafe on the 28th June for your Barcelona to San Vino 2017 trip, where we will depart by noon. After introductions to your fellow Stokies and high fives all round, we will jump on the bus and embark on our Barcelona to San Vino 2017 adventure. The bus is spacious, so there’s plenty of room to relax and unwind. Several shots and a little shut eye later, we will arrive in Haro. Once we arrive there is nothing left for you to worry about, apart from having the time of your life. Our bunch of helpful guides will be there to answer any questions you may have, and to assist you where necessary before you’re let loose into the madness that is San Vino 2017! Easy…let the three days of fun commence. After a few beautiful and blurry wine-filled days later, the bus will depart at noon on the 30th June from the Haro campsite. The bus is due to arrive in Barcelona around 7pm. (See ‘How To Get There’ for more details.)

What is San Vino?

There are live performers doing everything from Spanish classics to Justin Bieber’s latest profound piece of music. We’ll drink and dance and frolic and attempt to salsa and have the night of our lives with the locals. We’ll maybe sleep for an hour and then we’ll get our festival whites, grab our weapons (boxes of red wine) on and head on public buses up the hill at 7am.
They mayor will lead the whole town up the cliffs of Bilibio to a mass in honour of San Pedro.

You’ll look out over the beautiful surrounding countryside and sigh at the tranquility…. and then someone will dump a bucket of red wine on your head. All hell will break loose and you will eventually emerge exhausted, exhilarated… and purplish-pink. After washing off in the creek, we’ll head back to the square for more celebrating and chasing around heifers- or men dressed up as heifers. Oh, the joys of a Spanish festival. They’ve got it right. Ride with us from Barcelona to San Vino 2017.

Costs: €250 | US$ 306 | £232 | AUS$ 377

  • 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 2017 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 La Batalla del Vino 2017 with a stay at our infamous Surf Camp in San Sebastian, then its 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 more wine drinking and singing.

    Campsite Address:

    Camping Haro
    Avenida de Miranda 1
    La Rioja

    The bus leaves Barcelona on the 27th at 12:00 and arrives at camp at 17:00. Departs on the 30th at 12:00 and arrives in Barcelona around 17:00. Barcelona pick up point: In front of Hard Rock Cafe in Plaza Catalunya.

  • 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.

    Can I store my valuables somewhere safe and sound?
    Don’t want to leave a shiny new iPad lying around the tent? How about a valid passport crucial for your return home when you’re fragile and still hungover, ready to hug mum and dig into a home cooked meal? That’s why we have a secure locked box for small valuables! Thank us later.

    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.
