Wine of the Week – Campo Viejo Rioja 2012

In the heart of Rioja, Campo Viejo offers an introduction to the world of Spanish wines in its beautiful vineyards on a plateau near Logroño. The bright, lively wines offer red fruit flavors from strawberry to raspberry and cherries. The soft wines pair well with pasta dishes, meats and veggies.
Dating to 1959 when the winery produced its first vintage, Campo Vieja has had a long tradition of innovation. Winemaker Elena Adell seeks to make wines that “add a special touch to any occasion,” she says.
Wine is part of the Spanish culture, and Campo Viejo became identified with Spain’s opening to the world as wine became central to the life of the country. In the ‘90’s appellations of origin were introduced and Campo Viejo kept evolving.
This is a wine for every day sipping, a wine by the glass or the bottle, representing value and quality to diner and restaurateur alike. Go to http://www.campoviejo.com to learn about how the winery became involved in sustainable practices in 2001 and became the first Spanish winery to certify its Carbon Footprint through AENOR in accordance with the ISO commitment to make its lands a place to enjoy for many generations to come. Sustainability, says Fernando Pozo, is “a daily part of how we do business.”
