Campo Viejo Crianza is a Spanish wine which I find some time at Tesco. It costs around 6 pounds. I like a very good red wine, very strong like fire! The bottle shows you that this is not a pale wine and it has a yellow label, with information on the producer. It all looks so Spanish, and this is good! This wine sits in oak barrels for at least 12 months, but the one I have just finished to drink is dated 2004, and it was a good one! It has a fruity taste, although if you drink more than 3 glasses, with some good meet, I must confess that it starts to have a more bodied taste, and the fruitiness leaves the space to a nice feeling that this ...

I was bought a present of a bottle of Campo Viejo Rioja Gran Reserva 1999 around 5 years ago from Spain and have been looking for it ever since. Obviously, it mustn't last that long! Since then I have bought a couple of bottles of Campo Viejo Reserva whenever I have seen it... one to drink and one for the wine rack...but that never seems to work somehow. I previously bought two from Oddbins on the high street a couple of years ago but I drank them both and they were delicious. Last week I saw some Campo Viejo Rioja Crianza 2002 in Tesco's at £5.99 a bottle and, as I had never tried this one, I again bought two. After drinking one last night I decided to write ...

Way up in the North of Spain, a long way from where I live on the South Coast, is an area known as Rioja. Under the hot Spanish sun the fertile vineyards produce some of Spain's most popular wines. It was there in 1959 that Jose Ortiguela founded the Bodega, Campo Viejo. He called it after the area where he had grown up as a child, an area of land near Villar de Arnedo which was granted to the honoured retired soldiers of the Roman 4th legion. This area was known as Campo Veterano and eventually, as Campo Viejo,literally translated, the countryside of the old man. What a nice history! Although I have drunk this wine fairly often I did not know it's ... Read the complete review

I'm a big fan of wine. My parents have a small (12 bottle) wine rack in our dining room and I've been having a small glass or more of wine with our evening meal since I was a teenager. Now, of course, I have a lot more, and whenever I'm home my parents and I will get through a bottle of wine while cooking and another while eating. They're hardly wine experts but they make good choices and I often go by their recommendations when I'm buying wine to drink myself. There's a lovely wine shop near my boyfriend's flat in Edinburgh (Provenance Wines, if you're interested), but before I discovered it I used to buy most of my wine from supermarkets for convenience. The wine I'm .. Read the complete review

Campo Viejo Rioja Crianza 2007 Well, here I am, your resident wine expert back again. The last two days I have been waiting for plumbers to fix a leaking toilet. Not worrying for me, but worrying for the kind folks downstairs whose bathroom ceiling has gone blue (I use bloo blocks). A couple of days off work, a royal wedding coming up, and no choice but to stay home and watch the walls. What do I do? Drink wine! I have had three bottles of this wine now, the first two I purchased from my local off licence (I call it the blue shop because its blue) for £8.99 each. Earlier today I had to pop out quickly to get some pea sticks for the garden and ... Read the complete review
