This post is dedicated to our friends who are going to Spain very soon. They are very lucky.
They have the chance to be at the most famous export with the Fiesta de la Vendimia Riojana, the Rioja Grape Harvest Festival.
From 20th until 25th September 2013, Logroño will honour Saint Mathew but also Bacchus and the region’s best known produce – La Rioja wine
During this 5 day of festival you can experience the ‘Treading of the Grapes’, which sees young people in traditional costume tread the freshly picked grapes to get the first grape juice of the season, which will then be offered to the Virgen de la Valvanera.
