Batalla del Vino

The "Battle of Wine" is held annually in June in the Spanish city of Haro in the region Rioja organized. The custom goes back to the Middle Ages, when the Castilian cities of Mirande de Ebro and Haro fought bloodily over border disputes. In memory of this, there is a peaceful battle every year on Peter and Paul Day, in which the crowd, wrapped in white outer clothing, splashes with red wine.
