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 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 2019 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 or San Sebastian on the 28th, or make your own way to Haro. Check GoEuro for the best deals on flights, buses and trains. If you fly choose either Bilbao or Biarritz airports. From Bilbao airport there are regular buses to San Sebastian. To get to San Sebastian from Biarritz International Airport take a French SNCF train to Hendaye, change to the nearby Euskotren station (located just outside the SNCF station) and take a Euskotren to San Sebastian. Each train ride is between 30-40 minutes, with the total train trip cost less than €10. A coach service also exists between Biarritz airport and the Hendaye train station, via Saint-Jean-De-Luz (change buses there). The coach ride is less than one hour and costs about €4. You can then reach Haro from San Sebastian-Donostia by bus or train.

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.
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.
