The celebrations find their 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 .oming from Haro and the surrounding region to fight with eachbother and with travellers. The battle is fought on a hillside overlooking La Rioja’s vineyards, and battlers use buckets, water pistols and anybother device that ca-0carry 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 a-0up-and-.oming Spanish fiesta and one that you must visit if you’re a wine lover, party animal or a lover of unique travelling experiences.

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 deluxe tents and teepee accommodation, eat chef prepared breakfasts together, and party with hundreds of like-minded international travellers, with a-0unlimited open bar of beer and sangria.

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 i-0your 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 coachbtrip fuelled mostly by wine drinking and singing. If you’re combining the trip with a Barcelona stay at Costa Brava for example, then the journey is a little longer but that just means even more wine drinking and singing.
