This annual wine fight takes place in the intimate foothills of Bilibio mountain in Spain. Each year this massive event brings together about 10,000 people armed with buckets and water guns filled with red wine.
This traditional began as a celebration of St Peter’s Feast Day, which happens on June 29. The town of Haro in La Rioja has kept the 'La Batalla de Vino de Haro' an ongoing tradition. This year the wine fight saw the spillage of 130,000 liters of wine during the Rioja Festival.
This adult version of a water fight is a great way to spend an entire summer day. The event itself kicks off on June 28 and tends to lead into June 29. With ruined clothing and wine-soaked hair this fun tradition leaves guests giddy and filled with delicious Spanish wine.
