The festival takes its origins from the heritage of the locality of Binissalem, which harvests a surplus stock of grapes every year. The tradition took form when grapes not to be found of sufficient quality were to be considered useless, and these grapes became to be used for grape fighting. Under rituals, a rocket is set off from the central square, after which the communities advance to the open fields. Whistles are blown in the fields to commence open free for all grapes being thrown amongst the crowds. Beverages from grapes are amply distributed, along with an entire grape stomping sequence. Floats are arranged for crowds to move around the vicinity amidst all the fighting, while local music is also played in open air concerts just for the sake of recreation.

The grape throwing festival, known as the Festa des Vermar across Spain, does not match the international scale of other food fighting festivals in the country, but it does reflect the growing potential of a new discovery to become popular over time.
