Campo Viejo Versus Conde de Valdemar
Rioja is a well acclaimed wine region in Spain known for quality and ageability. The area is comprised of hundreds of wineries with long histories and some that are just beginning. Today, Rioja has a balance of producers that rely on ancient wine making techniques as well as newer bodegas captivated by innovation and sustainability. Campo Viejo opened its doors in 2001 and produces terroir driven reds and sparkling wines. Conde de Valdemar, founded in 1889, is one of the largest growers in Rioja.
