Food + Drink


Thursday 8 November marks International Tempranillo Day, a celebration of the iconic Spanish grape and a day to uncork a bottle and raise a glass with loved ones. For the perfect pick, look no further than a classic bottle of Tempranillo from Campo Viejo, the most loved Tempranillo in the UK with nearly 30,000 bottles opened every day – that’s 120 glasses per minute!

This bold but gentle 100% Tempranillo wine showcases the vibrancy of Campo Viejo and its roots in the Spanish region of Rioja, recognisable by its deep cherry colour, aromas of ripe red fruit and gentle sweet notes of vanilla and spices.

For those seeking to share something a little different, try the award-winning Campo Viejo Reserva, an approachable yet complex blend of Tempranillo, Graciano and Mazuelo aged for 18 months in American and French oak casks and finished for 18 months in the cellar. This delightful wine treats the drinker to a beautiful balance of cherries, black plums and blackberries, elegant toasted oak and elegant touches of clove, pepper and vanilla.

Pairing suggestions this International Tempranillo Day

  • Big fan of pizza? Well good news as this highly versatile varietal is an ideal sidekick to pizza. Bake (or order!) any tomato-based pizza, sit back and pour your friends a glass of either Campo Viejo Tempranillo or Campo Viejo Reserva and enjoy!
  • If you fancy something heartier, the smoky flavours of Campo Viejo Reserva are also a great match to grilled meats and seafood like steak, chicken and octopus. Impress with the simple yet impressive sounding tapas dish Pulpo Gallego; grilled octopus that has been lightly marinated in olive oil and paprika, served alongside boiled potatoes.
  • A glass of Campo Viejo Tempranillo is also the perfect pour for vegetable-loving friends. Serve it alongside a plate of fresh tomatoes dressed in olive oil and fresh sea salt or with buttery garlic mushrooms toasted over a hot grill.

The UK’s number one Tempranillo by Campo Viejo is available for £10.05, whilst Campo Viejo Reserva is available for £13.35 from all major retailers.
