If you’re traveling for a foodie event, check with the organizers to be certain it’s still scheduled. It’s probably been canceled, and you should be “sheltering in place” anyway.

Batalla del Vino

Submitted by on June 7, 2012 – 12:24 amNo Comment

It’s the sort of battle that foodies dream about: the Battle of Wine.

Rooted in a 10th century dispute between Haro and Miranda de Ebro, two neighboring villages in La Roija region of Northern Spain, the batalla has become a fun-filled day that starts with a Roman Catholic Mass and then devolves into a competition that uses thousands of liters of Riojan wine.

After the participants are soaked to their skin, everyone shares tapas and more wine (this time, imbibing it) in Plaza de la Paz square, Haro, Spain (map).

This year’s Batalla del Vino is June 29, 2012 (a date on the religious calendar as the Feast of San Pedro/Saint Peter).

You can see a video of a past batalla here.
