The 2013 vintage won a Bronze Medal at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2015 and at the Decanter World Wine Awards in 2015.
Campo Viejo's dedication to Rioja winemaking (it's been around since 1959), alongside the most advanced winemaking techniques available, allows them to create modern twists on traditional methods, delivering progressive styles of Rioja that satisfy today's discerning modern palates and perfect for sharing with friends.
Campo Viejo has a long and proud history that takes us back to the Roman Empire. However, it has been over the past half century when our name has become synonymous with Rioja wines. From our first vintage - brewed in the former Ortigüela winery in 1959, to the creation of the famous ‘Rioja Bottle' in '61 and the unveiling of our state-of-the-art sustainable winery in 2001, we have been at the forefront of Rioja winemaking.
