Juan Alcorta: Campo Viejo Winery in La Rioja, Spain
Visit to the Juan Alcorta- Campo Viejo Winery located just outside of Logroño. This new winery was inaugurated in 2001. It is one of the most innovative and beautiful wineries to date and has sparked a movement to renovate older wineries in La Rioja. The winery itself is integrated in the landscape and has a presence of harmony with the environment. You almost wouldn´t even know it´s there from far away.
We got a private tour of the winery and had a chance to try one of my favorite value priced wines from Juan Alcorta, the Marques de Villamagna, Reserva 2005 which is a 100% Tempranillo with 18 months in 80% French and 20% American oak. It is a easy to drink, full bodied wine that proves to be a favorite amongst friends. Enjoy!
Special thanks to Campo Viejo, some video footage was taken from their video played upon entering the winery.
