RIOJAN WINERY’S TRANS-ATLANTIC VICTORIES

In recent months, Campo Viejo has been recognised as the leading Rioja winery on both sides of the Atlantic. In addition to being awarded Winery of the Year at both the Berlin International Wine Competition in March and the New York International Wine Competition in May, Campo Viejo wines have picked up a raft of gold medals from Berlin to San Diego.
Elena Adell, Chief Winemaker for Campo Viejo said, “In recent years, we have been using our experimental winery at Campo Viejo to explore new expressions of Rioja and deepening our understanding of how different winemaking elements affect our signature Tempranillo grapes. It is pleasing to see wines from across the portfolio win gold across the world.”
Campo Viejo Reserva 2013 was awarded 92 points and recognised as Best Rioja at the Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition 2018, as well as being awarded Double Gold at the New York International Wine Competition 2018.

Campo Viejo Gran Reserva 2011 won Best Rioja, 94 points at the San Diego Wine & Spirits Challenge and Gold at the New York International Wine Competition and the Berlin International Wine Competition.

And it is not just Tempranillo earning accolades for Campo Viejo. Campo Viejo Garnacha 2016 and Gran Campo Viejo Cava Brut Reserva were both awarded Double Gold by the Tasters Guild, with Garnacha also picking up gold at the New York International Wine Competition. Campo Viejo Tempranillo Rose 2017 also picked up a gold at the Berlin International Wine Competition.
