Six thousand Spaniards took to the battleground today... their only amunition... thousands of gallons of wine.
Soldiers were armed with everything from wine skins to super- soakers.
Some took a more simple approach and used the glass in the face technique.
The battle lasted two hours, then turned to singing and dancing.
