The Wine Battle in Haro, La Rioja

Battle of Wine

Festivity of National Tourist Interest
La Rioja

On 29 June, San Pedro’s Day, the Riojan town of Haro holds an interesting festival: the Wine Battle.

This tradition dates back to a possible legal dispute with the nearby town of Miranda de Ebro over the ownership of some cliffs. After a mass, this peaceful battle starts with both sides throwing litres of wine at each other non-stop. It’s an impressive spectacle that ends at midday. Then, the people return to Haro and gather in Plaza de la Paz square.
