Campo Viejo Crianza 2005
Tasting notes: Soft and fruit-forward, not oak-driven
Food tips: A balanced wine well suited to pork, lamb chops, grilled steak, venison or dry cheeses
Campo Viejo has a long history that dates back to the Roman Empire. However, it has been only in the last century that their name became synonymous with Rioja wines. From the first vintage – brewed in the former Ortigüela winery in 1959 – to the creation of the famous ‘Rioja Bottle’ in 1961 and the unveiling of their new state-of-the-art sustainable winery in 2001, Campo Viejo has been at the forefront of Rioja winemaking.
