You will arrive on June 27 at the campsite where the party is already going strong. Before arriving, it's best to get a lot of sleep, because after a little while the party will move into the streets where a massive amount of local people will join in. This street party has been known to continue straight through the night but sleeping is also possible in your accommodation. Those who don't sleep see the sun rise early in the morning and the locals prepare for the wine fight, which takes place in the morning and this is where the early risers meet up with the ones who have yet to fall asleep. At this point the madness starts again and the wine fight begins. After all grape blood has been successfully thrown you will head down back to the campsite where another party begins or you could of course finally go grab some sleep. Take the hassle out of trips like San Vino Wine Fight Festi...
