Rioja Wine Harvest Festival

by Dejou Marano

When: Mid September

Where: The city of Logroño, La Rioja, Spain

Why You Should Go: Every September wine aficionados from across the land converge upon the city of Logroño, the capital of La Rioja, to fervently celebrate the region’s fine tradition of winemaking. The Rioja Wine Harvest Festival, known by the locals as the Fiestas de San Mateo, pays homage to the region’s most valued commodity – the grape. Visitors can enjoy a jubilant atmosphere where wine flows by the gallon and local traditions are the main event. Festival activities include grape stomping by enthusiastic, barefoot participants, the offering of the first must to the Virgen de Valvanera, a running of young bulls, parades featuring floats, musical performances, delicious regional cuisine, and of course, the plentiful imbibing of La Rioja’s loveliest vintages.
