San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018

Haro, La Rioja, Spain | 27 - 30 June

San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018

The soon-to-be famous wine fight of La Rioja, northern Spain. Yes, the delicious, world-class vino tinto that has made La Rioja famous is used as weaponry in this battle above the Spanish vineyards. The Wine Fight is known as La Batalla de Vino de Haro by the locals, this is the perfect opportunity to visit one of the world’s great red-wine regions and leave after being soaked head-to-toe in the grape juice that didn’t make the grade. Stoke Travel’s all-inclusive Wine Fight packages include: entry into the battle, your stay in pre-erected twin-share tents with mattress and sleeping bags, a delicious, cooked breakfast and dinner each day (including a welcome BBQ on day one), Stoke Travel guides to show you where, and how, to battle, plenty of red wine to throw, plus our famous campsite party for before and after the battle, this year featuring international bands Kiwi Pips, Honey Hayze, Paul The Kid, Mesmeriser and Hiaground.

WHAT IS THE HARO WINE FIGHT?

The celebrations finds its origins in a centuries old land dispute between Haro and neighbouring Miranda de Ebro, that over the years descended into the Wine Fight (read more about the Wine Fight’s history here). These days the dispute has been solved, but the Batalla de Vino remains, with locals young and old coming from Haro and the surrounding region to fight with each other and with travellers. The battle is fought on a hillside overlooking La Rioja’s vineyards, and battlers use buckets, water pistols and any other device that can carry and throw wine. And don’t worry, wine lovers, it’s not a waste! This is the wine that wasn’t good enough to be bottled, and when the battle’s over the rivers of wine fun back down the mountain and into the vineyards to fertilise them. The Wine Fight is an up-and-coming Spanish fiesta and one that you must visit if you’re a wine lover, party animal or a lover of unique travelling experiences.

CAMPING AT THE SAN VINO WINE FIGHT

Stoke Travel’s San Vino campsite is the perfect place to party and prepare for the Wine Fight — and to wash away the vino in the on-site pool afterwards. Set by a river at the base of the hills where the battle takes place, surrounded by vineyards, the campsite is where we sleep in pre-erected twin-share tents, eat chef prepared breakfasts and dinners together, and party with live international bands, like Kiwi Pips, Paul The Kid, Honey Hayze, Mesmeriser and Hiaground, as well as DJs. We will be holding the biggest party outside of the party with hundreds of like-minded international travellers, and unlimited beer and sangria is available for only €10 per day.

Meet us there, or ride with us from Barcelona or San Sebastián. San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2018 is going to be one helluva Spanish party!

  • 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.

    Campsite Address:

    Camping Haro
    Avenida de Miranda 1
    26200
    Haro
    La Rioja

    How To Get There

    Take the Stoke bus from Barcelona or San Sebastian on the 27th, 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.

  • 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.

    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.
