Wine Review: Campo Viejo Tempranillo 2013

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Campo Viejo is the leading brand in Spain’s famous Rioja wine region renowned for its vibrant and expressive wines. Campo Viejo is the top-seller in its category and the world’s number one Spanish premium brand.

The wine spends four months in American oak casks before rounding off its aging in the bottle. Named after the Spanish word for ‘early,’ or ‘temprano,’ this grape ripens earlier than most grapes.

This wine was featured at a Spanish themed event with members of  the International Food Wine Travel Writers Association and everyone thought it was excellent.  And at $10 a bottle,  you’re getting a great value for a Tempranillo crafted with care by one of the top brands in Spain.
