Ibiza fiestas - San Mateo Wine Festival

San Mateo Wine Festival is one of the most popular winter events and with good reason

For a comprehensive list of Fiestas on Ibiza during the year, please see Calendar of Fiesta Days

To get us all well and truly in the mood for Christmas, we are fast approaching one of Ibiza's most popular fiestas…the annual San Mateo Wine Festival.

The tiny and charming village of San Mateo in the north-west of Ibiza is blessed with extremely fertile soil which is perfect for growing grapes, the result of which being an abundance of home-made wine, produced by the locals, and which is showcased on the second Saturday of December every year.

Organised by the Neighbours' Association of the village, the San Mateo Wine Festival has been a favourite tradition on Ibiza for over twenty years...and with over a hundred different wines available to sample completely free of charge, it is perhaps easy to understand why. People come from all over the island to join in the fun, and to revel in the festive atmosphere and warm sense of community. Local Ibiza food, such as sobrasada (traditional sausage) is served, there is live music and, of course, lots of dancing.

Being held this year on Saturday 14th December (5pm onwards) in San Mateo's sports ground, this is one most definitely not to be missed, and if you are on Ibiza, we look forward to seeing you there.
