Full Information about Haro Wine Fight - Batalla Del Vino

The battle of the wine in Haro, Spain is a Spanish fiesta like no other - 29th of June 2020

Join PP Travel in Haro, the capital of the Rioja region of Spain from the 28th of June at what is one of the most unique, messy and memorable festivals you will ever attend, La Batalla del Vino de Haro or the Haro Wine Fight.

Let the experienced team at PP Travel lead you right into the heart of the action to ensure you get the most of this short, but exuberant experience. Our fully trained crew will have you completely prepared for the wine battle and will advise as to how to get the very best out of this festival at the campsite, in the town of Haro itself and of course, at the wine battle.

Choosing who you travel with to the Batalla del Vino (Haro Wine Fight) is of such importance. The actual awesome but crazy wine fight lasts only about two hours with about 2500 people attending the festival in Spain in 2016. Due to our experienced team whether wanting to be in the middle of the carnage or experiencing it a bit more on the side lines, we are certain all our passengers got the most out this unbelievable event.


The event itself is not actually ticketed (at this time) but its popularity is growing each and every year and there are limited accommodations in the town of Haro so its advisable to book early to ensure you don't miss the opportunity to attend the Haro Wine Fight.

PP's Batalla del Vino tours are not only the best value around starting at just £99; we offer comfortable camping accommodation (air mattress included) in the premium Haro campsite and provide the best advice you can receive in regards to the event and the town but most of all, we are dedicated to ensuring you get the most out of the wild Battle of the Wine.

Choose either our twin share or single occupancy camping accommodation both with air mattresses included. Tours include local transfers to the Batalla de Vino which depart and return from right near the campsite. The night before the wine fight PP hosts a welcome BBQ at the campsite with beer and sangria included, followed by a walk into Haro's old town square where the incredible pre-party is hosted with all night live music and dj's. We also include breakfast daily, a brunch on the day of the wine fight itself,

Put your trust in the PP Haro Wine Fight team and we will ensure you get right amongst it all and get the most out of this crazy, amazing experience.

The Wine Fight
The Haro Wine Fight takes place in Haro, a small town of approximately 12,000 people located right in the centre of the Rioja area of Spain. The event is a one-day, in fact, one morning only happening, that occurs on the 29th of June each year. It is short, sharp, crazy and awesome fun. Most combatants adorn the traditional red and white garb, then at 7am on the 29th, follow the mayor of Haro (who is on horseback) on a 5km procession out of town, up into the cliffs of Bilibio, to the Hermitage of San Felices (now days the local council puts on buses to transfer everyone up and down the cliffs).There are water trucks filled with wine, kegs and barrels filled with wine, buckets, wheelbarrows, kayaks, canoes, water pistols, cups, balloons, hands and just about any type of vessel you can think of, all filled with wine. A flag is then ceremoniously located and a short mass is endured before red, wet carnage ensues and everyone covers each other with wine. There are wine soaked bands playing traditional Spanish music and an amazing atmosphere of excitement, fun and exuberance.

PP passengers will then return to town and the camp to clean themselves up, jump in the pool, have brunch and perhaps rest up for the evenings festivities in Haro again.

There are, in fact, no actual rules laid out for the Haro Wine Fight so common sense would be the key indicator as to how you should approach the wine fight. Probably don't do to others that you yourself would not want done to you, respect that this is a local festival and above all have fun. This wine soaked fiesta and associated events occur year after year without major incident.

The Batalla del Vino is nationally recognised event in Spain so attending should be considered mandatory if you are in this part of Europe! This is an exclusive, non-massive tourist fiesta and is like nothing else in the world. A great tradition of the magnificent wine region of La Rioja, Spain. Be a part of it.
