Battle of the Wine

Battle of the Wine.- Haro, Spain

If we talk about crazy wine-related travel experiences, we need to talk about “La Batalla del Vino” in Haro.

The Haro Wine Festival is held each year from the 28th to the 30th of June with the major focus being the Haro wine battle itself.

Most combatants adorn the traditional red and white garb, then at 7am on the 29th -Saint Peter’s Day-, follow the mayor of Haro (who is on horseback) on a 7km procession out of town, up into the cliffs of Bilibio, to the Hermitage of San Felices.

A flag is then ceremoniously located, and a short mass is endured before red, wet carnage ensues, and everyone covers each other with wine splashed from all manner of containers like buckets, cups, bottles, jugs and even water pistols.

In Spanish this unbelievable, exuberant, crazy and mad wine festival is called the Batalla del Vino en Haro.
