Wine Fight – A Battle For the Ages…

The Wine Fight is held on the morning of the 29th of June each year in the historical heart of Rioja just outside the town of Haro (pronounced Aro), and is an exuberant, liberating and totally awesome experience.

Unlike the Running of the
Bulls and San Fermin in Pamplona or the La Tomatina Tomato Festival in Bunol
near Valencia, the Wine Fight is a much more authentic Spanish fiesta with many
locals and fewer tourists.

From 7.00am in the morning
on a craggy hillside at the foot of the Cliffs of Bilibio boozy revellers begin
to gather. Most have had no sleep having partied all night in the town’s main
square to the many bands and DJ’s that have performed the night away. The
streets of Haro are filled the night before with locals of all ages and you’ll
often see kids and the elderly still there at dawn and heading to the Wine
Fight arm in arm.

With historical roots forged
a millennium ago, this wine throwing fiesta, known locally as the La Batalla
Del Vino (battle of the wine), is quite simply put…Crazy! According to
tradition, Haro had to reclaim its control of the area every year by raising
the town’s flag above the tiny chapel at the top of the cliff. Eventually
pilgrims who were to carry out this ritual, started feasting, drinking and
well…the rest is history as they say!

Combatants make their way the 6kms out of town to the location by foot, bike, horse, tractor, car, scooter, motorcycle, donkey or via the council provided free bus transfers which take you most of the way to the Cliffs of Bilibio. For this insane battle the weapon of choice is vino (wine) and there is no quarter asked and no mercy given once in the thick of the action. Armed with water pistols, buckets, crop sprayers, water bombs, jugs, backpacks, bottles and every other imaginable vessel that can hold liquid the crowd gleefully covers each other in red wine from head to toe.

The tradition of San Vino
dictates that everyone wears white clothing adorned with red sashes and scarves
and it’s pretty much guaranteed that by the end of the Wine Fight that there
won’t be any part of your clothing that’s not stained irreversibly red. Young
children can be seen attacking adults and grandparents can be seen dumping
buckets of red wine on very young children. There is no mercy.
Tourists are easily identifiable and simple cannon fodder for the locals and
are guaranteed to be soaked. This Wine Fight is bacchanalia at its core
and the wine god Bacchus himself would be proud to witness this ridiculous,
superfluous but totally energising and invigorating event.

Most tourists attending the Wine Fight
stay at the nearby campsite which is in a brilliant position just outside the
towns centre. An added advantage of staying at the campsite is that the local
buses also depart for the Wine Fight from the campsite, so it makes an ideal
base for tourists to locate themselves.

Are Sennheiser Headphones Really Better Than Bose?

There is a tussle at the top of the headphone market as Sennheiser
and Bose battle to become market leader as we kick off 2019. Sennheiser and
Bose offer truly excellent headphone products that offer a revolutionary sound experience
that other brands of headphone cannot seem to come close to matching, so we
thought we would take a look at both brands latest models to see what we like
and don’t like about each.

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless Headphones

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless Headphones

These Sennheiser
headphones make use of the latest Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technology for listening
to music on the go, without any leads. The headphones themselves are
ergonomically designed and lightweight, and even after prolonged usage, the
headphones are comfortable to wear.

For portability,
the headset can be folded up which makes it perfect for travellers who like to
listen to music on the go.

The headphones are
fitted with adaptive noise cancellation technology. We tried the headphones out
on a flight, and we loved the noise cancellation, thanks to the Impedance:Active
490 Ohm/ Passive 46 Ohm noise cancellation system.

It is possible to
control the PXC 550 headphones using voice prompts. Of course, you can also
control them using touch as well if you prefer. We found that NFC pairing was
simple and straight forward.

For phone calls,
the headphones make use of triple microphone array technology which provides
excellent clear calls.

The PXC 550 headphones
from Sennheiser are able to work with “CapTune”. This is the company’s new premium
music player and sound tuning app, so you can adapt the music to exactly how
you want it.

Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones

Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones

The latest Bose headphones to hit the market are the QuietComfort
35 (Series II) line. What makes these headphones unique is that they are able
to offer three levels of world-class noise cancellation technology. This makes
them perfect if you want no interruptions while listening and this also makes
them great for travelling.

We loved the way that these headphones were Alexa-enabled,
allowing you to play your favourite music using voice commands. For phone
calls, the QuietComfort 35 headphones use a noise-rejecting dual-microphone
system, which makes your voice transmit to the receiver without any background
noise. You will certainly notice the difference!

In terms of Bluetooth pairing, this is easy to do. When you
switch the headphones on, it will set this up automatically, so there is no
fiddling around with the headphones themselves to try and pair them with your
device.

On balance, no matter what headphones you buy, you will love
the quality of the sound. For portability, I would recommend Sennheiser. For noise
cancellation, make sure you go with the Bose headphones.
