Characteristics of Campo Viejo Tempranillo
Campo Viejo Tempranillo is a red wine produced by the Campo Viejo winery in the D.O La Rioja. This wine is a blend of three different grape varieties; Tempranillo (85%), Graciano (10%), and Mazuelo (5%).
The winemaking process for Campo Viejo Tempranillo is carried out following traditional methods, drawing on the La Rioja regions decades of experiences in viticulture. Firstly the grapes undergo the process of destemming. Following this, the grapes are pressed and crushed, which obtains the must. Campo Viejo Tempranillo then undergoes fermentation at a controlled temperature, before being bottled and placed onto the market.

It lacks depth, and is very average, although the price is good.

La Rioja is one of the most important areas of wine production in the world. It has a long history, and exceptional soils and climates. From the Tempranillo and Grenache varieties they make great red wines that are masterfully aged which demonstrates the experience passed from generation to generation.
The new winery of Campo Viejo opened its doors in 2001, replacing the old facilities from 1967. The facilities are situated on the outskirts of Logroño. The winery boasts an excellent location, on the top of a hill near Logroño, and although close to urban areas, it was in a fully rural environment with extensive vine crops. The top of the hill is flat like a plateau, covered with vineyards (contributing to the 1,900 hectares that supply the winery) and sweeping views of the Sierra de Cantabria, the Ebro valley and the capital of La Rioja. The facilities are split into two buildings, characterised by its simplistic nature, with straight lines, clear block colours, and facades with carved stone and wooden elements. The real body of the winery is underground, carved into the mountain in the manner of old cellars, all in agreement with the oenological and architectural criteria.
