How long does the Wine Fight last?

This awesome wine throwing fiesta starts around 7am in the morning when people head out of Haro town by foot, car or local bus transfer up to the side of the cliffs of Bilibio (about 4kms out of town). With zero rules, wine is then thrown about with reckless abandon in an orgy of red wine soaked fun. Usually lasting for a couple of hours there is no official start or end time for the festivities although most people will spend an hour or so soaking their mates and other people before heading back into town for showering/swimming and more partying. Locals tend to also enjoy campfires and bbq's on the plateau just below where the wine fight is held straight after the event.

What else happens during the Wine Fight fiesta?

Part of an annual fiesta in the town of Haro, the Wine Fight itself is actually only one event from of a full program of festivities and cultural projects that form an entire week-long fiesta.
