San Vino Wine Fight Festival, also known as the Haro Wine Festival, is an annual event which takes place in the town of Haro located in the La Rioja region of northern Spain. The festival is held every year in the summer, which involves a Batalla de Vino (Battle of Wine) where wines are poured at each other from buckets.
The festival dates its origins in a centuries old land dispute between Haro and neighbouring town of Miranda de Ebro, that over the years descended into the Wine Fight. Although the dispute has been solved, 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.
Our 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 as well as DJs.
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.
