Harvest Festivities 2015 – Spain

Are you planning on visiting Spain during the coming months? Then you will be one lucky person if you like wine! From the end of July till the beginning of October the grape harvest will take place. As you might know, here in Spain we are always looking for an excuse to party, so naturally we make a big festivity of the grape harvest as well: Welcome to the Fiestas de Vendimia!

Wine festivities Spain

Apart from wine, wine and more wine, there will also be typical Spanish dishes, Spanish dance and music and of course a lot of people! The most known festivities, such as the ones in Logroño and Peñafiel, will attract thousands of national and international visitors. If you are looking for something on a smaller scale, you won´t have to look far, since almost every town has its own fiesta de vendimia.
