Wine in your eyes, wine everywhere
Like the name suggests, this is a water fight, but instead of water we’re fighting with wine. Specifically red wine from the La Rioja region of northern Spain, one of the world’s renowned grape juice zones. We party in the village, dance in the town square, hit up the bars and restaurants, and then on the morning of the 29th we head up to the vineyards where everybody in the region is waiting to smash us with red wine.

Guides To Take You To The Festival
Where do we stay when we're not soaked in wine?
The campsite is located just outside the town of Haro, in La Rioja, Spain, which is one of the world’s best red wine regions. The campsite is sweet, the campsite parties epic, the pool the perfect place to soak during the day, and the village with all its restaurants, bars and street parties a short walk away and slightly longer stumble back.

What's the story with this wine fight?
Legend has it that the fight started as a border dispute between two villages that was solved every year by the erecting of flags dyed in red wine, which inevitably turned into a wine fight. Now everyone – and we mean everyone – from the local area and a handful of lucky tourists turn up and soak each other in all the waste wine, using every type of vessel possible – water guns, buckets, weed whackers, you name it. It’s so much fun!
