Rioja festival goers soaked in 130,000 litres of red wine

Ten thousand people took part in the ‘battle of wine’ festival in Haro, Rioja, throwing 130,000 litres of red wine at each other. The annual festival – named ‘La Batalla del Vino’ in Spanish – is held on 29 June for St Peter’s Day. It starts with traditions that have been maintained for three centuries, including a procession with the town mayor, and a pilgrimage to the Hermitage of San Felices de Bilibio, the patron saint of Haro – before the battle of wine begins.
