Sitges Mostra de Vins and Festa de la Verema 2017. Fiesta de la Vendimia 2017. Sitges Wine Harvest Festival has been celebrated since 1961. Sitges celebrates the annual grape harvest with a Wine and Food festival called 'La Festa de la Verema' in Catalan and 'la Fiesta de la Vendimia' in Spanish. It features a popular wine show at the weekend called 'Mostra de Vins' on Passeig de Ribera, where visitors can sample the best wines from all the top wineries of the 'Macizo del Garraf' and Penedes wine regions of Catalunya.

During the festival Sitges restaurants prepare special menus dedicated to grapes and wine. The 'Nit de les Pubilles' on Friday 6th at 22:30 is a 'beauty pageant' with roots in Catalan traditions. Various barrios or organistions enter a girl as their 'pubilla' in the contest to become the winner called the 'Pubilla Major' who then later goes on to represent Sitges at the contest of 'Pubilla de Catalunya.' Read more about la pubilla on wikipedia. Other highlights of the Verema festival are the grape stepping contest 'Concurs de trepitjadors de raïm' on Plaza del Baluard on Sunday 8th October around 12.30 - followed by the inauguration of the wine fountain at around 14.30 called "Inauguració de la font del vi" and the weighing of La Pubilla counterbalanced by wine bottles - callled "Pasaje de la Pubilla" and finally traditional sardanas dancing led by La cobla Sitgetana. The Festa de la Verema de Sitges is organised by Fomento de Turismo de Sitges in conjunction with Bodegas Torres and Ayuntamiento de Sitges.
