6.7.18 Fiesta de la Vendimia 2018

The poster and programme for this year’s Fiesta de la Vendimia have been announced. The dates are 1st – 16th September and the Fiesta is dedicated to the town of Rota. The art of cooperage will be featured, with an art exhibition, guided visits, a round table and lectures. This ancient office has seen many ups and downs and has come from almost disappearing to huge growth thanks mainly to barrel seasoning for the spirits industry.

The press announcement at the city council's Bodeguita.

As always the first and most symbolic act will be the treading of the grapes at the Cathedral but there will be all sorts of other activities including concerts, flamenco, exhibitions, guided walks, bodega visits and activities for children such as learning to use a venencia. The popular De Copa En Copa tasting event will take place at the Claustros de Santo Domingo. Horses will also feature as the 9th September is the European Day of the Horse.
