San Vino Wine Fight Festival
27 - 30 Jun
Start early with a procession of locals and tourists, dressed in white shirts and red scarves, all carrying jugs, bottles, water pistols and other types of containers filled to the brim with sweet rogue wine. Town’s mayor leads them all to the cliffs of Bilibio, where a mass is celebrated followed by a true free-for-all wine fight begins, and we take advantage of a ‘bottomless’ supply of red wine and throw it on and at each other, friends and strangers alike. What follows is a sea of wet, purple bodies everywhere. San Vino Wine Fight Festival 2017 is a sight not to be missed.
