La Batalla de Vino

The Road Travel CrewComment

La Batalla de Vino, Haro, Spain.  June 28th marks the beginning of the Wine Fight in Haro, Spain with the biggest party of the year.  After a few hours sleep, or none at all (the street parties literally go all night), the town heads up a mountain 5kms away to cover each other in wine, dance to wine soaked bands and to kiss wine covered mouths. There are water trucks filled with wine distributing wine to water pistols, back mounted spraying devices, into buckets which are randomly poured on heads and into anything else that can hold, and then dispel, vino tinto.
