San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018

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

Getting Soaked At San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018

Includes stay in pre-erected twin share tents with mattress and sleeping bag, daily hearty breakfast, dinner every night, a delicious BBQ welcome dinner (vegetarian option available), red wine for throwing, awesome campsite parties and even more awesome Stoke Travel Staff!

A battle so fierce that the vineyard and surrounding hillsides turn purple, so violent that the weary and wounded stumble away from the fighting covered from head to toe in what is, in fact, glorious and gorgeous red wine… This is San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018, a wine throwing festival also known as La Batalla del Vino de Haro or Haro Wine Festival, which takes place on 29th June.

Haro Wine Festival: How it will be?

The day starts at 7am with a procession of people old and young, locals and tourists, dressed in white shirts and red scarves, all carrying jugs, bottles, water pistols and other types of containers filled to the brim with sweet rogue wine. Led by the town’s mayor, the procession winds through the town to the cliffs of Bilibio, where a mass is celebrated. After the mass a true free-for-all wine fight begins, and we take advantage of a bottomless supply of red wine and throw it on and at each other, friends and strangers alike. What follows is a sea of wet, purple bodies everywhere. San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018 is a sight not to be missed.

And then, when it’s all done, we wipe the wine off us and we head back down the mountain, pickled, as it were, in delicious red vino. At noon everyone rushes into town to celebrate at the Plaza de la Paz, the celebrations involve drinking, partying and running around a bull ring chasing frolicking heifers. That’s La Batalla del Vino or San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018 in a nutshell.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.
